Default 07 starting rpm's are high

Since this is my first Toyota I am not familiar with cold starts.
On a cold start the engine's rpm's are at 1500 and it takes a good minute
for them to drop to 1000 rpm's. Then after driving it the idle rpm's around
750.
Is this normal on the 4 cly. My other car is a Chevy Aveo with a Suzuki
engine and it
does not do this but does idle up on cold starts for about 30 seconds then
drops to normal idle.

It's the same with my camry 07 4cyl and Rav4 98 (previously owned)

What I normally do is let it run for a few seconds then drive slowly
out of my apartment building and out of my block (another minute), I
don't let the car stand still to warm up my engine, I think I'm wasting
gas doing this. I dont think its harmfull since I don't speed up until
I reach the main roads.

I have talked to a few people and that seems to be the consensus.

My 91 Camry does it too, don't seem able to tone it down. Volvo recommend
warming the car up that way, it warms faster under light load.

Backing out "slowly" is a good point. The rpm is so high that if I
start to back out too soon, I feel like I'm being shot out of the
garage from a cannon.

1500rpm on a cold motor is to fast , your oil has not circulated yet, if
enough pressure develops the bypass valve on the filter will open. At
least put it in D to lower rpm till you fix it. Warm it should be near
600

If 1500 rpm is too fast, what rpm should it be? How do you fix this?

It should be around 600rpm I dont know how to fix it but at 1500 rpm my
car will do 45-50 mph. Rpms should be kept low till the motor is warm,
just as the overdrive does not engauge till 110f, cold oil is hardest on
a motor since it does not flow.
