Synchronize or parallel?

Actually this is a java problem, but I dont know if different machine have their own behavior. So I decide to post question in Blackberry Forum.

The question is, I have to write a program in the Blackbery BOLD 9000 (Blackberry OS 4.6).
But my program is very slow to get and display the http request. So I think I can use different thread to solve the problem.
What will happen if I use two timer in a single function such as this:

public void sample(){
Timer timer1 = new Timer();
timer1.schedule(new RemindTask1(), 1000);
Timer timer2 = new Timer();
timer2.schedule(new RemindTask2(), 1000);
private class RemindTask1 extends TimerTask {
public void run() {
private class RemindTask2 extends TimerTask {
public void run() {

Is that Task1 parallel run with Task2?

You don't want to use Timer as a background thread to perform blocking IO operations. Start your own Thread using the Thread class.
