Recommendations for better hardware on Openmoko.

1)A 600 Mhz processor is minimally required to run the OS at usable
speeds.An 800 Mhz processor would be good across all OSes.A 1Ghz processor
would be too costly
2)Please use ADXL335 accelerometer whose sensor output is better, less
noisy, smooth transition and will be better to develop applications.Also
please provide a direct access to ADC read from the processor and not a text
file dump and then read method.
3)A tilt compensation 1 axis or 3 axis magnetometer would be good.

With a better processor speed there is no turning back for Openmoko.
