Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

I thought it was a rather sensible approach? Looking at smartphones as PDA replacements, and dragging in the older windows CE devices as references for what has been possible in this space before, helps place his views and requirements in a context. Merely saying "I think iOS has worse multitasking than android" is less interesting than a compare/contrast with earlier useful solutions/iOS/android.
