???  I run a webcam on a 200 MHz microcontroller without  any  problems,
except if you swicht to VGA moduls of 640x480/16M.

Oh, it is a Atmel AT91SAM9263 with 4" (470x272/16M) of 8"  (800x600716M)
Display...  Both with TouchScreen.

Hmmm, I am already working on such design, but as TabletPC in format  A4
(300x210x25mm) but using the Marvel Armada Series (not 300).

I like to get the maximum size of a TFT into this format, so  if  anyone
can recommend me transmissive Displays with a physical dimension of less
then 260x190mm (~12") and a resolution of up to 1024x768 please  let  me
