I am not privy to any insider Apple information. Moreover, while my knowledge is certainly colored by my work on Android, I'm not drawing a comparison or using any Google-specific knowledge." Interesting stuff about how Android does multitasking.

I recall multitasking on my N700 being a bit rough, but my N900's been a dream, and it's largely got the same hardware at the current generation iPhone. The core UI is still single window/full screen, but the compositing window manger works wonders for management and unless I'm explicitly trying to run CPU intensive applications together the performance is just fine.
