PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Samsung's recent Android 4.1.2 upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10.1 adds power and flexibility to the company's unique offering of Android multiwindowing features. With this update, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can run up to 16 multiwindow-enabled Android apps at once, Windows/Mac-like, on a single screen. Apps endowed with Samsung's multiwindow technology are usable in three viewing modes: full screen, dual view, and cascade view." There are already some complaining this represents a dangerous fork of Android. I thinks it's a step in the right direction.

Well, no one's saying you need tilling on your phone. Just like you don't want tablet apps to be scaled up phone versions, and some apps have different layouts for tablets, you may well want more windowing features on bigger screens. It's true that so far Android is mostly on phones and 7" tablets, but now Google released the official 10". They didn't put much work into using all that new space compared with 7", though.
