In the context of Android, more RAM means Android can keep more sleeping program in the RAM so they will be ready to be quickly resumed when you return back to the apps. More RAM means Android is going to spend less of its time killing and reloading apps from the internal memory/sd card, and instead spend more time doing actual work you care about. This ...
Well this is very subjective, because it depends what you're doing. First of all, true multitasking (having multiple apps run) requires a faster CPU, so that all the processes can run at a decent speed. You are right that for all these apps to remain in memory, you need more RAM. I have 512 MB RAM, and my processes only start getting killed if I run ...
Android System Info is a free app from the market which will tell you more details about your phone than you ever wanted to know. It has all the details you want about your CPU and Memory and much much more. Install it, start the app and check the System tab for all the information you are looking for.
Settings -> About Phone should tell you most of what you want to know. Failing that, it will at least tell you a model name which you can then search google for more info. My 'About Phone' lists Model, CPU info (i.e. what CPU) and Memory info among other things. But I am running CM7 with Gingerbread.
Do you need an actual app? Google recently released Google Docs Mobile (accessible via docs.google.com on your phone) which seems to work pretty well for editing and creating documents from my playing around with it. However it is a website rather than an app, and does require a live data connection, you can't use it offline in the same way that you would ...
In a phone most of the programs you will use are thinks like email, IM, web browser,… This kind of apps does not need a powerful CPU, but given the fact that you will be using an Android Phone you will be running multiple applications at the same time which needs some extra CPU time, but more importantly, needs enough RAM memory to accommodate all the ...
My answer for you is twofold; there are innate downsides to off-brand devices but - most importantly - your use case (development and application purposes) might make off-brand Android phones a poor choice. This is from my experience with the phones (I have a lot, having lived in Asia for years, and seeing a lot here in the States) First, the general ...
The answer lies in the kernel source for that HTC Wildfire - look in arch/arm/mach-msm/acpuclock.c to see the table of the accepted frequencies. Since the WildFire is based on MSM-7x25 chipset here's the excerpt of the frequencies table hardcoded, assuming its a GSM handset: /* 7x01/7x25 normal with GSM capable modem */ static struct clkctl_acpu_speed ...
You cannot upgrade the processor, however you can upgrade the kernel. Find your device on forum.xda-developers.com and read, read, read, read, and read some more. It may sound scary, with the risk ofx bricking your device, but I assure you it is much easier than it would be to replace the processor. If CyanogenMod 9 is ported to your device, then you ...
I'd think a simple web search with the name of your device and "specs" should return all of the information you need. There are any number of sources of this information on the Web. Here's a link I found after a simple search: http://chinagadgetdeals.info/official-rockchip-based-apad-irobot-android-tablet/
