 I knew he had a Nokia 770 I was thinking of a smaller device :)
The Nokia 770 is quite powerful, I'm not sure its representative but
I've not compared numbers.

If I'm forced to buy one so we can share numbers I think I can handle it :)

I've seen a lot of traffic on arm issues thats why I mentioned it.
I just can't give numbers for the device I'm testing but most arm
devices that use similar cpu's have about the same performance so
it does not matter too much. And of course having a good reason to get a
770 is not a horrible position to be in, but it makes it tough for me to push
for sending him other devices :)

Maybe someone from intel will send him a xscale device...
