Multi-tasking on a cellphone, if that were an option on the iphone everyone would be complaining "it's sooo slow!" or "the battery dies in 2 hours!". Apple made the right move in keep the OS streamlined, it's a mass-marketed device, the phone needs to be useful (simplified) to as many people as possible.
Oh yeah, I own an iphone.

I had to show her how to hold down the menu key to bring up the task manager, there were thirty things running in the background including games, I had to show her how to go to each application and scroll down to exit and teach her to exit things properly.
This is what happens when smartphones break out of the geek minority.
The iPhone has no such issues, press home in any App and it's gone.

Multitasking = the ability to do more than one thing at once, which the iPhone can do, therefore the iPhone multitasks.
And yes it was designed to do so in a controlled way as Apple's main priority is the user experience and that doesn't involve such complicated things as task managers.
I'll bet that at least half of people who buy Symbian smartphones would not even be aware of it's existance or how to use it.

I guess you are just too thick to figure out th... moreI dont mean to create an argument but, people dont seem to see that "multitasking", at least not full multitasking, is more than just music and web at the same time. I read an article on the web (cant remember the page but will look for it) that says that true multitasking is operating different types of apps (native, 3rd party) at thse same time without closing either one. I had a SE C902 and it too can "basic" multitask as the iPhone. But opening various documents, web browser and whatever it is you want to use, all you have to do is open a task manager. The iPhone lacks that. It has thd potential but it doesnt have it directly available. Which is why they made the Push Notifications. Sure multitasking can be as useless as it is helpful, and drains battery power and slows down phones but in some cases it can really help you out when you dont have your laptop or whatever. Still people should make this forum less personal and keep focused on the phone itself.

You're saying that the country that coined the term "gutter press" is renowned for the integrity of it's journalistic standards?
Apparently Apple is investigating these incidents and informed the EC that they were doing so, that's according to Reuters.

The interface is at least three times slower and less touch responsive. The iPhone has more RAM and better video accelerator. However the htc s picture quality is better. The iPhone s default software is indeed a bore and people who cannot tweak it will never be able to appreciate it at it s real value.
