Frobisher is on a distinguished road
Which phone did you run the SunSpider benchmark on? I was unable to complete a run of it on my N97 Mini because it kept running out of memory. On Opera 10.0 it ran to completion (but took twice as long as the time in your screenshot, so either 10.1 is a lot faster or you ran it on a faster phone).

There is a comment in the release notes that says "Somewhat higher memory usage, especially on JavaScript intensive sites", so hopefully this is something that will be fixed at some point. Until then I've found 10.1 unusable on some sites, e.g. the BBC site, as it always runs out of memory. Of course Nokia must carry some responsibility for the woefully inadequate amount of RAM in their phones.
