I'm not sure where it is coming from either.  The benchmarks I cited in
the list message I just sent out have the Zaurus 5500 at 22.5% faster in
bytecodes/sec than the iPAQ or J720, but it feels a lot faster than that
20% margin.  When I tap on the background, it takes at least a full second
to bring up a World menu in either 2.8 or 3.4 (even longer) on the WinCE
machines; on the Z, less than a half a second.  It is quite surprising.
