Those times are greatly exaggerated, or you've done something seriously wrong. 
Even on my 'old' neo1973 it took less than a minute to fully start plasma, 
and while slow, I think for many things the speed was quite acceptable on a 
neo freerunner. Running a full kde session (with kwin as window manager) 
doesn't make any sense anyway on such small screens, as kwin was never 
designed for something like that, but just running kde applications works 
quite well.
