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.

b-b-b-but java is just as fast as c++ right?


Depends on which specific implementations you are talking about.

Languages are not slow or fast, implementations are.

On the specific case of Android, most of the rendering issues have to do with the fact that Google initially was doing software rendering. And it was actually done in C, if you care to read Android source code.

Idealised maybe, but in real world? Properties of language, and what it aims at, tend to impact its practical implementations.
