    Sooo, only linux then? As android is linux after all. Rather pointless to put it in the title imo

    I'd like this on my TV, currently the damn thing takes 6 seconds to turn on. Serves me right for buying cheap!

    TWeaK: Our Samsung (not exactly a top end TV, but pretty good) takes about 30s to turn on. And the PVR is even slower :(
    The TV just sits there for ages with the LED blinking at you :( I have no idea what it is actually doing, and this is from standby.

    Lol, my computer boots faster than that :p Can't do a direct comparison as I don't own a telly. My old blackberry bold 9000 was horrendously slow to boot - about two minutes average but sometimes it felt more like 5. Good thing I didn't need it in an emergency :|. The N900 is better, but it still takes about 20-30 seconds.

    I miss the old days when phones would just turn on. That being said, I don't tend to turn my phone off very often,so I can live with a slow boot time. I certainly wouldn't pay extra for it. Tv's, on the other hand, would really bother me if they took 30 seconds to boot. Is this common with new ones?

    it dosnt specify cold-boot aka from switched off

    look at the psp when you turn it on from suspoend mode you could call that booting quickly and i doubt this boot would be that quick becasue it wont be able to load much in that time

    Linux =/ Android.

    Android = Modified Linux lacking standard libraries, so it needs alternatively compiled software.

    MeeGo/Maemo/Moblin = Linux, though.

    I've had my HTC Hero for just over a month and it takes ages to boot up, so i'd be happy to pay for this system. For the moment i think i'm going to have to look at overclocking it, which will probably be rather fun actually !

    I don't get it. If i turn on my WM6.1 HTC, it's instant on with all options. if I would be able to push the power button faster it will probably show the screen in a millisecond. Or are we talking about a Hard reset? thats even more curious. why would anyone hard reset or completely shut off their mobile device every time they use it?

    all mobile devices are instant on devices.

    Depends if the Hero has more than 100MB of RAM free after boot, which it requires.

    I think you're totally misinterpreting everything.

    You don't turn on when you press the power button - that's just resuming from standby.
