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."

Wrong title for the news.

iPhone does have multitasking!

The news/comment title should have been: Does iPhone OS need third party background processes?

Or something like that.

This is OS news. Come on!
