With Windows Phone "8" en route, it comes as no surprise that the number of background apps that can run parallelly has been increased to "8" !!!

the huge different between N9 n lumia800 is that wp has a lot of restriction compare to meego.
N9 has hotspot, front camera for video call, nfc, slightly bigger screen and dual boot with ICS Alpha (Nitdroid).

This is false. The ROM that they got the 8 background apps is from an HD2 WP7 8770 ROM with modified registry. Meaning whoever made the ROM increased the number of apps from 5 to 8, but officially Windows Phone will still have 5 background apps.

When i look at ur images GSMArena, it is actually 9 apps running on the background including the home screen.
in windows phone when u open an app e.g people's hub and u switch to multitasking, u only find the people's hub with home screen running.

not everyone in the world needs to speak english, and in case you haven't noticed - he already does.
I'd like to see you comment on an arabic or nonenglish forum.
