I'm getting your point but remember that we are talking about 
Android-capable devices (well, at least this was Bernhard's point I 
think) - and I bet that most of these are equal or stronger in terms of 
processing power then G1 (this was first widely available Android hw 

There is another thing to mention - data transmission security is 
Ahillean heel of modern mobile phone networks. For couple of reasons 
operators don't care or don't want to provide it (same for - all? - 
mobile OSes vendors). It would be nice to push this topic further 
(despite some potential difficulties - like one mentioned by you) 
because not much is happening on this field.
