PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Oh multitasking. That staple of computing that got thrown out the window with many modern smartphones. We got some rudimentary thing in its place - but even as multitasking on phone and tablets improves, its user-visible side remains cumbersome. Windows 8 has a neat implementation, and now it's time Android follows in it footsteps.

How is the N9 better than webOS? N9 was maybe more stable/capable of running more apps at once, but how is aiming your finger at a tiny "X" button in the corner of an app tile better than simply flicking a card off the screen???

As for the PlayBook, everyone knows it's a webOS ripoff. It might be slightly improved somehow (maybe you could elaborate?), but it is essentially the exact same thing as webOS. Which is great.
