Apple "Whereas the iPhone is aimed at short, focused tasks, the iPad is more likely to lend itself to longer, more general tasks that involve using multiple apps, just as we're used to on the Mac. It's easy to imagine wanting to use an iPad to read text in Mobile Safari, copy some text to a Pages document, and send that document to a colleague via Mail. That specific example may turn out to be possible with the current iPhone OS, but it points toward needing more ways for iPad apps to work together in the future."

Streaming music while browsing the internets or playing a game. That's something my G1 does and i use. Multitasking also allows for custom home screen widgets and background processes for things like twitter apps without using funny work around push notifications
