    Bit a bummer when you also see that Snapdragon 845 was also announced today and we will see Android devices announced with it at CES. Hopefully, manufactures will update the hardware quickly like some Android manufacturers have.

    Amazing. These totally miss the mark.
    ARM should replace Atom CPUs not i5/i7 CPUs in laptops.

    An 8in to 11in with this may be interesting.
    This is meh ...

    I don't fully disagree, but at the same time these are also just the first two products announced, and they're also being released slightly out of cycle (not only is it a little late to be releasing a SD835 device at this point, but also they missed the important holiday timeframe). I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more releasing in June-July for back-to-school.

    Come one girls, there is a reason that they can't use the 845.
    As with the beginning of the Snapdragon 835, which is produced by Samsung, Samsung gets about 95% of the production.
    When they are sated, the others get the chips.

    And in real ARM benchmarks ( not X86 Emulation) the 835 is around 1900/6000 which is Core-M or Skylake I5 territory and that is enough for 90% of the
    offices and except for gamers, for everyone else.

    WOW - it sure is dead here in WOA land!

    OK tribe, what will CES bring for WOA watchers next week - real WOA devices; Surface Courier; Surface Mini; the holy grail tablet (whatever that is)...whatcha think?

    Anything more than just bigger TV's?
