As smartphone hardware improved and applications demanded more performance, the situation was almost the same. Manufacturers couldn’t make CPUs any faster because of heat dissipation issues in that tiny space and power drainage. So rather than put a 2GHz CPU in a phone, makers began using 1.2GHz dual core phones. Then came quad-core CPUs, like Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and a few in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line. However, the scalability that worked well in the PC (mostly) and better in the server market doesn’t work so great in a smartphone, because the nature of the development environment is completely different animal.
For mobile devices, bigger batteries may be more important than more processing power.
