Not to mention that the ARM CPU in the N800 is two generations later
(armv6 vs. armv4) and contains a floating-point unit.

Btw: Kobodeluxe 0.5.1 is in the OM repositories by now. This is not
about video playback but shows the neo's video (c)abilities quite nice.
It is not that slow. Enjoy the patches I wrote to make Kobo work on the
