    Now we all know that Android apps and AIR apps both technically run in their respective VMs (Virtual Machines) - given this information and the fact that RIM decided to give first class treatment to AIR wouldn't one expect the AIR VM to perform well?

    We from whatever tests I have done it seems that the JAVA VM seems to perform better - much better, the majority of my app annoyance comes from the navigator.pushView() method - now maybe I'm coding wrong but a lot of AIR apps seem to be slower than the JAVA ones recently made available via Android Player.

    Would someone be able to comment why this is the case? Is it the lack of multithreading on the AIR VM?
