    Give it a try and see what you find.

    Real World Speed Test:
    1. With no apps running, time how long it takes to open your Facebook app.
    2. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to re-open Facebook.
    3. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to open Google Maps.
    4. Close Google Maps and time how long it takes to reopen Google Maps.

    At each step you close the previous app.

    What results do you see? Here is what everyone else got: How fast is your phone?

    If you want to scare yourself go to Best Buy and do the same test on an iPhone, BlackBerry, EVO, Epic, Droid X, Droid 2, or Droid Pro.

    Even the BlackBerry's from a year ago are 3-4 times as fast as a Pre.

    Whoever told you that any phone today does true autonomous multitasking didn't tell you the truth. True Autonomous Multitasking requires that each task have it's own CPU, memory, IO, and resources. No phone does this. You need a processor array or server farm. All they do is time sharing and save state as you exit the apps so it makes it look like Multitasking.

    Still, this is multitasking for most users:
    You start listening a playlist and start typing an email when a Facebook note comes in. Before you can reply a text comes in that you reply to, then another, then another. You go back where you left off in the email and send it then finally get a chance to finish your Facebook note. Then a calendar note pops up that you have to be somewhere so you open Maps to get directions and Navigate to it. You say, "Text Chris I am on my way" and it does it while you drive. All while listening to your music.

    I understand that this does not meet the definition of real multitasking, but wouldn't most people not be able to tell the difference?

    I'm still not clear from a user perceptive why "real" Multitasking would be better?

    Are you making up terms? Multitasking does not require multiple CPUs, that is multiprocessing. I can find no definition for "autonomous multitasking" that you reference so it looks like you are inventing terms. Where is that from?

    I don't get what they are trying to prove about this? If you open any app cold on a overclocked pre compared to any phone except for google maps there is no way every phone is four times faster. That's 1 sec to pres 4 sec on everything. That just isn't true. Things like twitter and the broweser and email are all very fast on my pre minus. And opening and closing an app down is not the same on the pre as it is on iphone or droid. Putting a card zoomed out is like putting the app in the freeze state or running in the background like iphone or droid, and flicking the card off completely kills the app so of course it's going to take more time to completely reopen the app than to bring it out of a freeze state on another phone. Also isn't blackberry known to be fast anyways? I mean the horrid ugliness of the OS on a year old phone, you can tell it doesn't take much processing power to open or run it's apps.
