The Young is a single-core phone with a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. The processor should be powerful enough to deal with the basics, although the demo model I tried crashed when I tried to insert a smiley into a text message -- not exactly a taxing task. Like the Fame, I also found it laggy and unresponsive while playing a relatively simple air hockey game, so more intensive apps are likely to fox the Young.
