I've owned a lot of PPCs and Palm devices, so I have a general idea of how fast things run at various processor speeds. This device is phenomenally SLOW! It's slower than PPCs I had from 2002. It struggles to load anything, and when I create a Word document the letters on the screen can't keep up with my typing speed. The touchpad is buggy and unresponsive half the time. Going online via Ethernet is painful (loading a Wikipedia page was slow as heck). Coreplayer seems to have a seizure when I try to play a video clip.
I really want to be able to use this thing like a Mobilepro 900 or Jornada 720. But it's so slow and buggy that it's not even usable. Nothing I've ever used with an ARM processor has been this slow.
Is there another OS I can load on it to make it run better?
Is it normal for it to be this slow? Is there anything that can make it run faster?
Any help is appreciated.
