When using the Idokorro in local input mode (local input), the latency is roughly the same (1-2 seconds for transmission), since jmIRC has to transmit chat over the same network. xxxxxX is reasonably fast enough in Idokorro and does works around many of the latency annoyances of other BlackBerry telnet/ssh clients.
What I am saying, is, *****X is most definitely usable and competitive, provided you use the local input feature of Idokorro.
