Performance of my 3955 overall is pretty good, and this is using the PocketPC 2002 OS. Since I havent used a device with the 206MHz ARM processor I cant really compare. From what I've read on many Pocket PC sites is that performance varies. Like I said in my past post, it will be no faster than the 206MHz ARM chip and in some cases even slower. Fortunately, the upcoming Windows CE OS will have Xscale optimizations.
