I think we don't need to wait year or two. Curent MDA from T-Mobile
sports e.g. 128MB RAM and 400MHz XScale CPU. That should be simply
enough. In fact - if we start to think about porting to mobile devices
in a year or two - it will be late. We have to think about it now, and
have rebol/view available next year ;-)
As for me, I regard mobile devices View ports much more important than
some unix variants starting from Solaris, ending with BSD. My platform
priority is as follws:
- Windows, Linux, MacOSx, mobile devices/consoles ...... then nothing
for a looong time, then maybe other platforms ....
