The 1.5GHz chip is also recognized in the company's press release (first link in the article).
Third-generation products: MSM8260, MSM8660 and QSD8672 with dual-CPU architecture featuring enhanced cores running at up to 1.2GHz and 1.5GHz, respectively

I'm amazed at how fast smart-phones (and similar devices) are evolving. Hopefully, by 2015 they will be more powerful than current generation laptops or close to that.
But i'm still waiting for paper like devices to appear on the market. Those are the future. (and halo's)
