Can you point to some real examples?

3G networks operate at 144kbps, so each KB takes 56 ms to download.
That might be sorta slow, but the rollout of 4G is already taking place
and the speeds will be crazy fast at 100Mbps.

If you're concerned about memory use, consider that the 1st generation
iPod touch had 128 MB of RAM; 3rd gen has 256.  Even old Blackberries
had 64 MB of RAM.

What constrained environments exist today that will still be constrained
once they are upgraded to support this cached-info extension?
