Yes, it is really fair. Both the N1 and the WP7 phones have the same screen resolution and the same first gen snapdragon SoC.



For perspective, the first-gen iPhone and iPod touch are perfectly responsive, even though they're ancient in gadget years. When there are Android phones which feel as slow as crud despite featuring the same (or better) hardware as an iPhone 3GS, you have a big problem.
