The iphone does allow multitasking on selected apps like listening to music while web browsing or making a note or updating your calendar. OS 4.0 update will even expand its multitasking capabilities. Yes, it is true that when you switch apps on the iphone, you need to press the home button and then open the other app. That's 2 steps. But then you would do the same with multitasking phones. You go to the task manager and then choose the other app. That's also 2 steps. Sometimes even more on other phones. I hope that answers your question.

But it does allow multitasking on selected apps like music player and internet or internet while listening to music while updating apps. It is also true that to switch apps on the iphone, you have to press the home button then open the other app, but then it would also take the same amount of time on multitasking phones, because you also have to go to the task manager and switch apps. With the iphone's UI, it can switch apps even quicker than multitasking phones. I hope that answers your question. Also, the upcoming software update 4.0 will include multitasking for iphone 3g and 3gs.
And in Mexico too...you need to pay a lot upfront to get the iphone plus all the services for the 3G net..!!! more than double then US and Canada..
erm halo, may i ask where is the front camera for the 3G? or just use the cam at the back? but how am i going to look at the caller?

The radio station that I would like to access via the web needs flash support like many others. I really have no interest in radio apps just my local station for the morning show.

You say it's essential.
Thousands of iPhones have sold in Japan, Nokia pulled out because they couldn't sell any apart from a few Vertu's.
How come Nokia phone's with "essential" Bluetooth file sharing did so poorly that Nokia pulled out of Japan?
Iphone's have only been selling in China and Korea for a few months they've sold over 100,000 in China and quite a few in Korea which is mostly CDMA.

Bluetooth is instant file transfer from device to device directly.
