    It's been reported as a rumor previously. However it would not be so surprising to increase RAM given the larger size of images and the use for gaming - which consumes a lot of RAM. I would assume memory is shared by graphics processor and CPU.

    I am however surprised at the low CPU score from the benchmark. Just a little suspect, but as they say - it could be the benchmark just was not built that flexibly.

    To me what has sucked is that the iPhone 4 came with 1gb of ram and the iPad 2 only had 512mb of ram! Really Apple!

    Ummm.....

    iPhone 4 and 4S only have 512MB of RAM. I own both.

    But if you do find one with 1GB of RAM, I am pretty sure I can get some serious cash for it. Mainly because Apple would want to buy it to see how it was pulled off and still maintained battery life.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    Glad to see the 1GB RAM finally, now the dual core processor can finally be taken full advantage of!
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    And how may I ask was the dual core not being fully utilized with only 512MB of RAM?

    Depends on the task at hand. The dual core CPU allows for better multitasking or for things like editing 1080p video but less ram limits the number of program's running at the same time or how much video footage can be processed.

    But who cares? And why should we? Apple don't make a point of detailing there gubbins and specs of their devices. And for convenient reasons. The devices just work. And work good. As someone said, 'it's no slouch'.

    I don't personally care about core or ram numbers. I just care about performance. And for me, performance has never failed, even with a lower spec than it's competitors or lower spec than people's expectations.

    I'd certainy never moan about spec. It's all perceived.
