Windows It's been only a mere six months since its first unveiling, but Microsoft has already announced that Windows Phone 7 has been released to manufacturing. This means device makers can start tuning the software to their hardware, leaving plenty of time to release devices before the holiday season.

Wait, which phone OS runs their OS single-threaded? Ok, I've not developed anything for Blackberry, haven't even looked at their SDK, but Java by nature is not single-threaded (though Oracle is upset to some degree because Google has forked from the official Java standard, besides the reason of money directly for licensing) and I know iOS is NOT limited to single-threaded apps by a long shot, so, is WebOS single-threaded? I'm truly curious about that one!

There is a difference between simple mutli-thread operation and having a thread JUST for the UI animations. Applications operations cannot block the UI animations making it a lot smoother, even when multiple applications are running at the same time since only one application has the UI on a smart phone at any one time.
