Dual-core Samsung Galaxy 2 confirmed by Eldar Murtazin, Sony Ericsson Anzu not that great

Mobile phone blogging god Eldar Murtazin has a long history of getting his hands on devices well before anyone else, so when he tweets out some info, we tend to listen.

Today, he tweeted that he was playing with both the recently spotted Sony Ericsson Anzu, as well as a previously unknown dual-core Samsung Galaxy 2 GT-i9100.

You’ve probably heard the rumours about the Nexus S — the Samsung-built follow up to the Nexus One — and its delays.

Could the “hardware issue” causing the delay actually be the addition of a dual-core processor? Could the Galaxy S be to the Nexus S what the HTC Desire was to the Nexus One? That is, a skinned, branded version of Google’s “pure Android” device?

Or is the GT-i9100 unrelated to the Nexus S, and simply Samsung’s follow up to the Galaxy S, meaning the Nexus S won’t be dual-core? We just don’t know. All we know is that the version he was playing with was running Android 2.1, but will get 2.3 later.

On another note, Eldar also tweeted that the Sony Ericsson Anzu isn’t as “flagship” as people think, saying that it isn’t better than the Desire HD — which is available now — but won’t be available until March 2011, setting it back in terms of relative specifications. He also compares its laginess to the Xperia X10.

All in all, a tasty Twitter dump for a Sunday, don’t you think?
