could you just use a desktop and play with the compression (i.e. expand it) then do some magic and load them up?

It's not that simple because the SoC-producers would have to rewrite their drivers.
But I'm not sure that's the way Nvidia protected their apps.. I'm sure there's more protection behind it.

For those who don't believe me, the screenshot:

And voila, the tegra zone is going to be a killer for much people like i said before.

Some others will get the tegra 2 based phone and will be the most happy people. At the end maybe the exynos ends being the non premium phone version

So guys,i have reached Pune today early in the morning around 7.

Called that guy in Mumbai{aroung 10.30} & he told me that he indeed has received the stocks of SGS 2 in India.

The biggest upset/problem is the price point,from Rs 32,000{which he quoted to me for a single piece,i have told you me & my friends are going for it & are confident of getting it for Rs 30,000}...he is now asking for Rs 35,000{787$}.......Not less then that.

Anyhow we will be going to Mumbai later in the evening tomorrow & let's see the final outcome but according to the seller SGS 2 stocks have reached India

What makes you guys think that the Tegra2 model us capped at 1ghz while the Exynos is @ 1.2ghz? If you are the manufacturer, would you have it this way?

Yep it certainly sounds like what Virussnake said, make an extra buck, for themselves perhaps, by selling it at MRP (Maximum Retail Price - for those unaware :P)
It's roughly the same price that you'd pay for while ordering from Clove.co.uk (shipping included).


Well, good luck!

He is probably trying to cash in on your desperation/excitement.
I doubt Samsung would price the phone at ~800$, would only drive away people.
