Clearly, RAM is inching our the processor and perhaps even the phone to become a key factor on the newer phone launches. We predict pretty much all phones with 2 GB or more RAM in the coming months. What that means is that it is time to give you a run down on the impact of extra RAM on a phone soon. Or whether it really is worth all the hype. Watch this space for that soon!
