 A quick calculation on the back of a fag packet (which was hard to
come by, since I don't smoke) says you'd get around 210kk/s with the
latest StrongARM core at 160MHz. At 220MHz, you're looking at around

 I have no idea what is required to build software for the MessagePad,
so I'm not about to volunteer to build a client for it, unfortunately.

 Good ideas for any handheld client, but I think the "CE client"
refers specifically to WinCE at the moment. I personally would like to
see a client for EPOC 32, but then I'm a little biased.
