@bouncybunny if you don't know what multitasking means for ease of use on your mobile, then you must not be a power user.
With my Palm webOS device, I can start typing an email reply, search for an address from Google Map to insert in the email I'm writing, search previous emails messages while not losing the new email response I'm writing to copy and paste more info I need, while answering a sms messages that just popped, now, I get a phone call from a friend at the same time, and I can answer that phone call without losing anything I was doing before. In fact, with my Palm Pre, I can put my phone on speaker phone and continue writing my email while talking on the phone, and responding to the sms message ALL at the same time.
Now, I doubt that iPhone OS 4.0 will allow that much multitasking. No other platform makes it easy to work on your phone anywhere at anytime as easily as you would on your computer. Oh, and did I mentioned that the Palm Pre can open more than 50 apps, including 3D games all at once - no other mobile os can do that, none - [youtube.com...]
