Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

Lack of multitasking kills it for me.

A very strange failing on a 21st century device.

Back in the late 90s my old Psion 5, with its 18Mhz ARM CPU and 4Mb memory (RAM/storage combined), could happily multitask different apps.

It may not be such an issue for a phone, but for a product positioning itself between a laptop and a smartphone, with such a relatively high spec, a non-multitasking OS seems like an anachronism.
