I'm very happy to see that the direction we're headed is becoming more
clear.  A little radical, but then what else would set us apart from the
people who happily bite the NDA bullet and produce yet another Raspberry
Pi, Efika MX or OpenMoko phone.

Performance-wise the NanoNote doesn't compare to latest android and
apple hardware anyways, so sacrificing a few more CPU MHz doesn't
sacrific too much IMO.  Most of the time I'm not using 10% of the
NanoNote's CPU power anyways.

The only time I really use the CPU is when watching movies; but I guess
we'll have hw-accelerated theora playback ready once the Ya Nanonote
