In Steve's keynote demo he showed a bunch on multitasking with the iPhone.
Thing like listening to music which fades down when a call comes and looking up stuff on the internet and sending emails while talking on the phone.
So yeah it can do that kind of stuff.
You should also know that multitasking depends also from the network, not from the phone alone, in 3G you can do a lot more than on edge as you need bandwidth...

...hang on a minute, the iPhone can do this, hey what's it called when a phone does a few things at the same time?
before talking misinformation study and learn the way the real business world works and informs the public according to fed rules
CUPERTINO, California—October 21, 2008—Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2008 fourth quarter ended September 27, 2008. The Company posted revenue of $7.9 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.14 billion, or $1.26 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $6.22 billion and net quarterly profit of $904 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 34.7 percent, up from 33.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 41 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
In accordance with the subscription accounting treatment required by GAAP, the Company recognizes revenue and cost of goods sold for iPhone™ and Apple TV® over their economic lives. Adjusting GAAP sales and product costs to eliminate the impact of subscription accounting, the corresponding non-GAAP measures* for the quarter are $11.68 billion of “Adjusted Sales” and $2.44 billion of “Adjusted Net Income.”
what matters in business is your actual and potential future performance,
history in the market is ZERO
sorry that is the way reality is.

It sold a lot of units because of reasons other than it's features. The main reason it sold a lot of units is because of the Hype and superb advertising. and a lot of people are not yet buying it because they are hoping that the next iphone will include the basic features that were excluded in the 1st two iphones.

Please give credit where it is due, and applaud Apple for a job well done for the past few months, even outselling RIM (BlackBerry).
But saying that they're the third phone manufacturer in the world right now? That's a fanboy talking and trying to get away with it.
The iPhone is great. I always recommend it to anyone. It is THE phone at the moment. But when you know that it doesn't do half of the things you expected it to, you inform other people, like what I'm doing here.
As a business user, a SmartPhone (you know, one that multi-tasks) is essential. This is NOT a smartphone. Not even the WORLD BANK CHIEF can change facts.

Well, like I said, immature bankers brand this as a smartphone, whilst those experienced teenagers will go for the Nokia N97.
Acceptance is part of the solution. If you guys accept that this is a smartphone, then it will stick to the same formula, instead of upgrading to its full potential.
I gotta hand it to you though, that parallels reference was a good one! LoL
But it sold 12.5 million pieces and became the 3rd phone vendor in 15 months, obviously the market loves it and do not care about MMS and the other cheap phone features
The device is a glorified ipod. completely overated. it does not support the following: video calling; voice activated dailing; forwarding sms; sending & recieving mms; copy/paste; switching off predictive text; bluetooth file transfer; video recording; fm radio; A cheap phone does more than this overpriced one does

Intel Pulls Back Execs' Comments on iPhone
by PC Magazine Staff
A statement by Intel, released Thursday, appears to slap down executives who reportedly made disparaging comments about the iPhone.
Intel executives Shane Wall and Pankaj Kedia criticized the iPhone in a session at the Intel Developer Forum Taiwan, as reported by ZDNet Australia. The comments dealt with the iPhone and its ARM microprocessor, which Intel competes against with its own line of embedded microprocessors, including the Atom microprocessor.
But Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager of Intel Corporation's Ultra Mobility Group, repudiated the comments in a blog post on Thursday. (Intel does not link individual posts.)
"As general manager of the Group responsible for Intel's ultra-mobility products, he acknowledged that Intel's low-power Atom processor does not yet match the battery life characteristics of the ARM processor in a phone form factor; and, that while Intel does have plans on the books to get us to be competitive in the ultra low power domain - we are not there as yet," the post stated. "Secondly, Apple's iPhone offering is an extremely innovative product that enables new and exciting market opportunities. The statements made in Taiwan were inappropriate, and Intel representatives should not have been commenting on specific customer designs."

I tell you y you do not understand, because with bluetooth you would send ILLEGALLY the files to other devices, APPLE legalized the music download market with Itunes music store which is today the number one LEGAL multimedia retailer, stick to Nokia and the other 1000 times better devices if you like to live in the gray shade illegal area.
Apple is a company that makes billion of dollars of legal profits and makes millions of consumers happy like the 12,6 million people that bought the Iphone in the past 15 months.

Using this App my iPhone paid for itself over 100 times, although I have lost a few in the last couple of weeks.
Bloomberg is pretty good as well full of info although you can't actually trade.
The Apple iphone has no Bluetooth 4 sending data (fotos,music files etc) only 4 headset.It is the most disastrous phone till date.I can't understand y people r running behind Apple iphone.Y can't people go 4 Nokia,Sony Ericsson, Samsung,Blackberry etc which r 1000 times better than the stupid iphone.
Why is it then that SAXO DID NOT made a trading platform for other
They are market leaders and do not want to benefit from the other phone brands users ?
Or is it because the Iphone provides unparallel performance as a smarphone compared to the others ?
I like iPhone's design, from the UI to the physical features because it appears to be so classy.
But there were things that I don't like, the lack of most basic features for a phone.
But still I like this one along with my N95 8GB.
How was the phone when your listening music using phone's speaker?
How was also the phone when used as loudspeaker during a call?
I want some feedbacks from the user.
I don't like the one from the review.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I may not be over the moon with the iPhone, but hands down, IT HAS THE BEST UI (User Interface) out there.
Even an unborn baby can use it.
But if we are talking about things like, say, if it's worth it? That's debatable, and I think it's too expensive.
It's more of a status symbol. "Hey look, I have an iPhone, I have a big doink!" Hehe.
A smartphone it is not. It obviously tries to be one, and thanks to this, you can automatically see those big name reviewers where they're coming from, and if they're full of stinky poo.
Anyone who brands the iPhone a SmartPhone has not used a smartphone PROPERLY. ;)
BUT, this is still the BEST media phone at the moment. I just wish it could play WMA and AVI like a BlackBerry does.
