Is the smartphone simulator performance just THAT BAD?

 i've already asked about (or complained about) Simulator performance in another post. Now that I've had a chance to run it on a laptop with real hardware (and not a VM) I'm convinced that the simulators that ship with the Visual Studio plugin (storm, bold and torch) are just that stinkin slow to boot up.


With FlashBuilder and the Tablet apps, there is a lightweight test platform available that doesn't use the tablet simulator VM. Using this makes testing out UI changes pretty quick and painless.


Are there any other test tools that can be used with WebWorks that aren't so slow? OR Am I the only one seeing this and therefore missing something obvious?
