Mobile devices, the ones you're actually referring to, do not have h.264 specific hardware at all. They use a DSP, like the DaVinci from TI, to do the work. My Droid (and actually any OMAP2/3/4 device you care to mention that's used for media playback...) only needs a VP8/WebM codec blob for the DSP to play back "hardware accelerated" playback. Nothing special. Same goes for pretty much any of the Snapdragon based or Armada based ARM mobile devices.
The line you and others keep trotting out in this regard is not valid and repeating it over and over again like this makes you look foolish. Seriously.
