As he notes, it is pretty unusably slow right now, but hopefully that is an improvable slow. I've been spending some time with him on this to try improve the libmeegotouch end and it is good to see that progress is happening on getting it actually working on the devices.
It's a little intriguing as to what the slowness actually is. Software rendering on my desktop at least is pretty snappy (even under heavy load). I don't own an n8x0, so I think I'm going to have to dig around on my n900 and see whether I can find anything of interest out.
