    Hey guys!

    I've had my Sony tablet for a few months now but I have a general honeycomb (perhaps android even) question since this is my first device.

    Is the power on time a function of how many apps are installed? If so (just because I'm curious) why is this needed?

    I ask because through testing it seems that once I did a factory reset, the power on sequence was much faster than it is now (sort of tested this twice as a byproduct of other testing).

    I get the solid state drive... Does android (or honeycomb) actually "initialize" all apps at power (to a degree) so the user experiences less lag when opening any given app? Maybe I just answered myself but I'm curious to hear it from someone with actual answers :).

    Thanks!

    Android will initialize some but only up to a point. So the number of apps overall doesn't matter (it doesn't keep getting slower if you add more apps).

    So, what is the general power on time for a honeycomb tablet? Or would it be dependent on the honeycomb version of the vendor (I.e. Sony)?
