    It's hard to notice people complaining about the boot times, and they are quite long, not as long with the Uberkernel and the Pre Plus. However I think the boot times are because of the crappy memory used in it. Seriously? I get 1.5MB/s read from it? It's even worse sitting at 1MB/s for the write. My jump drive from 4 years ago has a faster read/write time. I can't even imagine a program trying to access that while things are using the memory.

    I believe this is one of the larger issues of why the Pre is quite slow (Other than not using the GPU for CSS and other things).

    Ya its certainly bad when compared to android or iOS. I have heard some reasons like because of the cryptfos but even before that it was bad. I agree that it needs to be solved whatever the culprit

    Is there any chance that boot time will be improved with webOS 2.0 ?

    Yea, but you can't change the read/write time on the existing memory. You're going to be stuck with whatever the Pre/Pixi have. Now opening and closing programs and other things, may be improved by GPU integration.

    Hewlett-Packard is sitting on a new kind of memory technology that may replace flash memory by 2013:

    The advantages have been already described on pre|central:

    In the mean time there are faster flash memory chips available for the next Palm device.

    Seems like a ridiculous bottleneck in the hardware.

    I am OK with the boot time as long as I can view my pictures without waiting 2-3 seconds for them to focus. Even with a patch. Ridicules!

    I often wondered if Palm skimped on the Flash RAM chip(s) in the Pre. Using it in Jump drive mode proves it isn't exactly speedy...
