The article is highly unscientific and unspecific. It does not elaborate
on what it means to "calculate" a terabyte of data nor does it specify
what it means to "handle" a petabyte of data. They're terms used by
ignorants, written for ignorants.

So all in all I think it's safe to discard the article.

Also, mobile phones don't waste most of their power doing "calculating"
and "handling" terabytes of data, but the RF and display consumes the
most of power. Therefore, even if you could scale the CPU down your
phone would still not go 2-3 months on a single charge.
