Looks like someone may have dropped the ball over at Newegg, judging by one of the banner slides on the main page:


Do you see what we see? The Galaxy Nexus, now with 800MHz moar processor! It's clearly a typo, but it's pretty lulz all the same. Fortunately, the actual cell phone landing page has the correct specs, so hopefully no one out there will be picking up the good old GN thinking they're going to be clocking the fastest speeds known to man in a mobile device.

[Newegg]; Thanks, JCase!

    As long as newegg keeps shipping to me quick as all hell (& keeps their competitive pricing), I'll keep forgiving them for minor things like this ;)

    They'll be a lot of people wishing it did have that speed!

    im gonna sue them i clearly read its 2ghz and now i have the box in my hand and its 1.2 WTF!

      Maybe Newegg will send you some extra megahertz. Let us know how it goes.

  • asshole

    And now AP thinks that 2 GHz is the fastest speed known to man...

      It says "fastest speed known to man in a mobile device."

    now, guys dont be so hard with me cause i dont know a lot about these processor stuff but a dual core processor wouldnt make a 1.2ghz speed into 2.4???

    • Daniel

      The maximum clock speed is still 1.2GHz. Take this example: two cars traveling forwards at 60mph does not equal one car traveling forwards at 120mph.

        nice way to exlain the whole thing, thanks :3

      Well, it just means 2 cores are working at 1.2GHz each but it doesn't mean it's the same as one 2.4GHz core. Unless a very specifically optimized for dual-core program is able to utilize both at the same time, the benefit will not be reaped by that program. It's customary to call dual/quad core processors by their common core frequency rather than sum them up.

    Carlos, nah dual, quad, etc just mean that's how many processors are working towards that 1.2ghz or whatever the speed may be.
