62 Symbian apps running at the same time – true multitasking demo on the Samsung i8910

The Samsung i8910 Omnia HD isn’t exactly the newest phone around, but it’s still a really good device.

In fact, it’s so good that it can run no less than 62 applications at the same time.

Andy HyperX has been releasing custom firmwares for the i8910 for some time now, and the latest firmware, called HX-V4-Speed-SE, allowed him to run the aforementioned 62 apps.

As you probably already know, the Samsung i8910 runs Symbian S60 touch, has 256MB of RAM and a 600MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor – so it’s not comparable to, say, a Google Nexus One (which has 512MB of RAM and a 1Ghz processor).

A video of the i8910 running 62 apps can be watched below:

You can download the HX-V4-Speed firmware for your Omnia HD via Andy’s website.

Now I wonder if Apple’s iPhone (with its newly acquired multitasking capabilities) will ever be able to run 62 apps at the same time.
