But E *is able to perform this*, in a better way than the other solutions.

You seem to think E is an ambitious/too complicated/too slow piece of 
software. You are obviously wrong here.

E is an optimized piece of software, probably the best one when you have 
  hard constraints (like on mobile devices).

Use a theme with -- as you wrote -- "some simple widgets" and you will 
see that E is the fastest one.

And stop comparing E in SHR/Om2009 (complicated multi layer theme for a 
not so good look) with QtMoko (simple theme for a good look), because 
being 2x faster when you display 3x simpler widgets is not significant.
