More Nokia N900 multi-tasking madness: 28 apps running

Remember the previous video of the Nokia N900 running 12 applications at the same-time without breaking a sweat ? Well check this new one out, this time the devices is cruising with 28 apps running simultaneously:

Wow, do we have a smartphone multi-tasking record here ? Maemo 5 seems to have some pretty good memeory management.

    while there are many app running at the same time, they are pretty much I/O bound apps, means they are just sleeping and waiting for some events … but very impressive nonetheless. better than iphone for sure.

    Great demo. Amazing device.

    Has anyone considered the reason that Apple doesn’t allow back ground running tasks is to help the battery life? I have to wonder how long the batter life would be running 28 applications.

    The icons and screen is too tight and small to use with a finger and hence it is driven by a stylus. I don’t think your average phone user will want to use a stylus after playing with an iPhone. Just my thoughts.

    I want everyone to make a better phone than Apple because then it means prices come down and features go up. :-)

    I honestly just don’t see it yet.

    I think the thing that Apple really did that pushed their device above the playing field in the US market was the App Store.

    Brazil did some really cool things on their MIDP phones with Java thanks to their telcos allowing innovation and a ‘farmers market type shop for software companies’. Apple took that concept to the next level with the App Store.

    The thing that hurts all of the other phones except for the Google Android or the Apple iPhone is the perception that the devices are closed and that the applications are limited or very expensive or both.

    Still this is a great demo and an amazing device.
