Did I imply it's slow?  I just listed approximate hardware so that the 
times can be placed in some sort of context.

that said, note that on a mobile device with 128 MB of RAM the RAM is a 
lot more likely to be a problem than the CPU in some ways.  Running out 
of memory is strictly worse than being a little bit slower.  So a lookup 
table may be more of a loss than a win, depending.
