I think he was making a joke, since the iPhone 5 benchmarks as being faster than a G5 PowerMac. It's the old game of "my cell phone is the computational equivalent of <insert favorite vintage device here>." Geekbench scores are currently calibrated such that a score of 1000 equals an entry level 2003 G5, and the iPhone 5 doubles that score on some of the sub-benchmarks. (In fairness to the Droid fans, there are a couple of Android devices that are in the same range as the iPhone5.)
