    I've been using ping responses in my local wifi setup to get a qualitative assessment of the N1 hardware/software. The N1 wifi is configured to be always on.

    N1 screen on: 40-80 ms
    N1 screen off: 100-300 ms
    local ancient pentium running Windows XP: 1-2 ms

    A faster snapdragon isn't going to get me too excited. It's like a faster abacus.

    What does that actually tell you?

    Yeah, it looks like power consumption is more important than speed.

    1) They drop the clock way down when you press the "off" switch. Maybe a factor of 3 or 4.

    2) It's a very slow general purpose processor/stack compared to a PC's Intel/Windows (or Linux or whatever). This is OK when you think of the usage model and the fact that there's a lot of specialized processing circuitry that is not involved in something like a ping response.

    But it does tell me that there's no urgent need for a faster snapdragon. My N1 can render a Battlestar Galactica show beautifully.
