Apple couldn't care less.
Right now, a 2.5 year old iPhone with an 800MHz processor DOWNCLOCKED to 600MHz sells better than ANY brand new phone from ANY other company. Even the ones with dual core 1.2GHz chips.
No one cares about that stuff. Least of all Apple.
Quad core phone. That'll be the day. You'll see some this year, sure. Android has to pretend to compete in some way. All they ever do is specs for no reason.
They'll release 1.5GHz quad core phones. And they'll get 3 hours of battery life and be too hot to use safely. You'll see people complain about their screens having a square discoloration from the heat these things put off. The phones will ruin themselves and you won't hear a peep from the anti-Apple brigade here. They'll just pay attention to "real" problems, like the iPhone 4's antenna.
