You are correct about managing expectations when it comes to remote desktop access from a wireless device.
There are 3 factors which will affect performance, wireless network speed, processor speed, and device memory.
The wireless network speed obviously is the biggest one, since wireless networks are not as fast as broadband access, you can sort of compare it to the old days of dialup, the EVDO network is currently the fastest. Using it on GPRS, iDen or 1X is currently the slowest in terms of data rate. EDGE is acceptable, but obviously not as fast as EVDO.
The processor speed also affects performance, the device must be fast enough to process the data, decode and decrypt it to display it on the device. The BlackBerry 8700 has the fastest procesor thus is the best currently at doing this.
The memory of the device is also a huge issue, the device must have enough memory to store the contents of the screen. Most BlackBerry devices only have a total of 32 MB of memory to store applications and usually only a few MB's left for applications to use when running. Often computer displays can be 1024x728, as you can see this takes up a lot of the available memory to display on the device.
