In case that sqlite database is quite big, preparation for using cursor requires lots of time-consuming-operation.
So, developer may considering about asynchronous way - showing progress while preparing cursor in background.
Then, what is 'Really' time-consuming-operation in preparing cursor?
As my understanding, in Android sqlite cursor, the answer is first 'fillWindow' operation of SQLiteCursor.
Notable thing is, at sqlite cursor, creating cursor doesn't do any real (or practical) thing.
So, creating cursor is done very quickly.
By the way, Sqlite cursor do 'fillWindow' operation at the moment of first 'getCount()' call - See SQLiteCursor.java.
Therefore, to prepare cursor in background, not only creating cursor but also calling first 'getCount()' function are required.
Here is sample function for reference.
