Nevertheless, I run my Internet through a 400MHz PowerBook G3, which can't be much faster than the iPhone 3G overall. If you can consider running AQM on that class of hardware (which I certainly would), or on a consumer-grade router, then there is little problem in putting it on a handheld these days.
