As for whether they did enough, who cares. It seems to be the same phone as the iPhone 4, judging by most metrics, but the apple fanboys are eating it up like it's the last drop of water in the Sahara. Apple knows full well they can just release anything and it'll sell like crazy.

If Apple sees this, they'll realize that all they have to do is package the same phone under a new name and their stupid customers will be impressed: http://videosift.com/video/Apple-iPhone-5-First-look-NOT-Stupid-People

Does my flip phone count as a super phone?

I only charge it once every 1.5 weeks, that's pretty super.

If I used my Android continuously, I'd have to charge it once every 1.5 hours.

One day you'll have an internal battery that conductively recharges your devices as long as they're near your body.

Why not just let your body charge it a la Matrix/Synners? (Synners is the first book that I know of that suggested doing this for electronics)

It's probably still better than the latest WinPhone.

Google coined the “superphone” nomenclature at the launch of the Nexus One. Khan said these devices are “optimized from a silicon perspective, a hardware perspective and a software perspective.”

In general terms, a superphone has more deep access to hardware capabilities, and the hardware is a step above what you’d see in a smartphone. Screens are larger — in excess of four inches, in some cases. The superphone has an impressive camera, generally between five and eight megapixels, that lends itself to high-quality photo and video capturing. It has multiple microphones for noise cancellation, both for calls and video recording.


Stupid.

Can't speak to other places but here in Canada, "superphone" is a bullshit marketing term coined by the cell phone carriers to advertise their highest-end models. Now it's the iPhone 5, Galaxy S3 and Lumia 920, next year it'll be some other batch.

A "superphone" can just mean any phone that supports LTE speeds also.

I think it's just a poor headline, meaning "The upcoming WP8 and Android superphones," as in the best of the best for each of those platforms.

The superphone for Android obviously being the SGIII, for WP8 being the Lumia 920, both of which are seriously impressive (and possibly stupidly big) phones.

WP8 SuperPhones? *giggles*

Did Microsoft coin that phrase themselves?

As for whether they did enough, who cares. It seems to be the same phone as the iPhone 4, judging by most metrics, but the apple fanboys are eating it up like it's the last drop of water in the Sahara. Apple knows full well they can just release anything and it'll sell like crazy.
