It is good that this is being considered in perspective, and I agree
with this prioritisation. Most other devices do not place as much
emphasis on all of these points, so I acknowledge that they may be
faster as a result.

What I am trying to do is get a general idea of the capabilities of
the XO-1.75, relative to something that is already available and
known. This is more for communications purposes than
engineering/technical ones.
