Windows phone are great devices but one of the downside is that there’s still no dual-core processor on the offer.

A lot of companies are already planning to roll out Windows phone in the near future including Samsung who are rumored to have signed a deal with Microsoft to manufacture windows phone devices in the future and Nokia who might end up playing their last card in the smartphone market and probably hope Windows phone works for them.
Windows phones will supposedly get a dual core update in the early part of 2012.
