Yes, that's correct. I believe that the number of threads in the pool has been changed, recently, from some small number, to 1.
I would like to encourage this discussion. It seems like a logical extension of the conversation in this list, if not of direct interest. It is my opinion that, until recently, the mobile environment was a pretty safe place, concurrency-wise. There wasn't a lot of optimization (the Android JIT is about a year old) and there weren't many cores on the processors. That's about to change, dramatically. I think the wisdom I've seen here would be a huge help, applied to the Android community.
