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.

RE[2]: Webos? Seriously?

taskmanager!=how the "os" (or apps) handle the different task

yeah, the webos taskmanager is pretty cute, and some can prefer it to the n9 one, but has someone already said, you also can close with a swipe "a la" web os.

you should really test these 4 devices to understand the true power, and lack thereof, of multitasking.
the n900 do not freeze (webos) or slow down (n9) app AT ALL. so you really have to care about closing every app, or you will drain your battery.

but they are all great after all ;)

about the playbook, it's better simply because the browser doesn't freeze at all in background. webos (and n9) always freeze their browser in background.
