Hmm, my experience running Python 2.5 on Cingular 8525 was not very
good. Launching Python itself took close to 10 seconds, and then you add
your application launch on top of that. I used Tkinter for UI, and
Tkinter often failed to load, requiring soft reset.

Once the app was running, though, the speed was ok.
