It will be a big difference unless you plan to turn your phone off
while you charge it, because it will probably consume quite a bit of
current in the case that GSM is on but the rest of the phone is
semi-sleeping. Maybe even more than 100mA.
As long as the Neo will support at least 500mA charging from a dumb
charger with a magic resistor value (or some shorted pins), including
existing chargers of this kind (like the Motorola ones), that should
be good for charging on-the-go. Having it take only 100mA from such
chargers is unacceptable.
