WinCE, mp3, and optimization

I think I've figured out why MP3's are such a problem...  the iPaq slows
to a CRAWL whenever it's playing them,  so I believe that the Strongarm
processor has no FPU...  all software.  Windows Media Player is fully
capable of playing these MP3's, however, so either:
1) It's possible to optimize the hell out of it
2) the iPaq 3850 has some sort of hardware MP3 codec.
naturally, I'm not too hopeful about Ogg either...
