Ned, right, once I thought about it, I realized that it wouldn't be the hardware decoding that depended upon NEON, but just about everything else does benefit from having it there. There are non-NEON compiled builds out there, that might work on the Tegra2 and other NEON-less tablets, but from what I've read, the NEON coprocessor helps out tremendously. That said, I'd still go with my recommendation of getting a Tegra3 chipset instead of Tegra2 because of the inclusion of NEON.
