Sort of comparable. Single-core Cortex-A8 is roughly what you had with the original RPi. Quad core Cortex-A9 is nicer but I bet you still get shitty firmware for it - that seems to be not just the norm but rather the ubiquitous default. When I said "SoC providers are free to offer a comparable cheap option", I also meant opening the software so that it could be used for something else than running Android. RPi people have so far been pressing hard for the graphics to work in things that aren't Android, for example.
