A quick comparison how fast images load on the iPhone using a simple UIImage imageWithContentsOfFile:. Each image is 8-Bit RGB without Alpha:

Filename Bytes msec
img-10000×50.png 224193 283
img-50×10000.png 200397 643
img-900×600.png 879483 623
img-30000×100.png 727709 1222
img-150×20000.png 911923 2218

Looks like the horizontal strip is the winner when it comes to loading speed.
