One of the most important features added in Windows Phone 7.5 is the multithreaded environment. This missing feature was very criticized in the previous version, but the main reason of its lack was the high battery consumption that is usual in multithread phones. In this release the team has agreed to add the multithread capability but it worked hard to reach a good balance between multithreading and battery life. This is the main reason for the introduction of Background Agents that are a way to manage the battery drain in junction with parallel work made by running applications.
