Qtopia has a more integrated aproach. They load plugins for different 
features. (AFAIK)
And the other systems launch new programs for each task. Sometimes even 
based on different frameworks. (e,gtk,qt)
There are ideas how to speed them up. Like pre-loading or integrating 
the basic phone apps into one binary.

If you want speed now, take qtopia. What you get is a phone.
The other systems go a few steps further...
