Windows There's a lot of news coming out of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, but since we can't compete with the well-funded gadget blogs, I suggest you read up on the details at The Verge (or Engadget). One thing stood out to me, though. While the entire industry is moving towards more cores, more megapixels, more gigahertz, more display inches - Microsoft is doing the exact opposite. Windows Phone has been updated and optimised to run on slower hardware.

Probably more to do with software rendering in pre-ICS Android and other issues with the SDK. I find it hard to believe that Dalvik would be outperformed by JS engines, given the nature of the respective code representations (bytecode vs. text), type systems (static vs. dynamic), and object models (classes vs. prototypes). The JS engines have to solve a more difficult problem set.
