I would be a little wary of being enthusiastic about the footprint of an A9. I have a Tungsten T5 PDA which has an x-scale ARM chip inside it. It plays music, videos and games. Displays/edits word,excel and powerpoint. It has built in bluetooth and with a very small card, wi-fi access as well. I can browse the net whilst listening to music. It has 256Mb in-built flash rom (used as ram) and plug-in SD cards up to 2G.

So the question would be. If I can get all that in an ARM powered ROM OS driven machine for 170 why can't an A9 be the same or at least very similar.
