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 .... -pekr-
