Aside from making gadgets more usable in situations where time is short and you need to shut them on and off quickly, like texting your ride while taxiing to the terminal or checking business email while your date leaves the theater for a restroom break, rapid boot times are just plain cool. Ubiquitous’ Quick boot doesn’t actually take devices from black to desktop by way of a super fast cold boot (as is implied in the video), but I doubt anyone will care to make the distinction in real world use. A saved state, restored in the same way as is done when most laptops recover from hibernation, takes Android “boot” times from > 30 seconds to < 2.
Ubiquitous has made their SDK available to OEMs, so there’s a chance that you will see this technology come with some phones right out of the box.
