Be that as it may, it still doesn't explain the speed difference of WebOS on the two different hardware platforms.
Unless the iPhone2 has some JS speed booster/optimizer and WebOS runs on top of this interpreter, I still don't see how "twice as fast" could be realized in software alone. I do agree that JS seems like a poor choice on which to base an entire OS.
