    iPhone:

    CPU 620 MHz ARM 1176, underclocked to 412 MHz
    GPU: PowerVR MBX Lite 3D

    Storm:

    CPU 528 MHz Qualcomm processor

    I don't know the GPU of the Storm, but honestly, does it really matter?


    Not to mention, the iPhone is just... better...

    The storm does not have hardware graphics acceleration. The iPhone uses Imagination's "PowerVR MBX lite". This is not bad, but the new PowerVR "SGX" core is the newest and significantly faster than the MBX.
