This is something that changes over time.

Today it is something like ~1GHz CPU, 512M RAM, bluetooth, 3g and wifi.

In a couple of years situation will likely change.

Another interesting thing is battery life. N900, if almost idle (say, a 5 
min usage session 3-5 times a day) could survive a week of wild life 
without charger. Without suspending!

I know it hardly depends on software support, but hardware must at least 
make it possible.
