Apple "Whereas the iPhone is aimed at short, focused tasks, the iPad is more likely to lend itself to longer, more general tasks that involve using multiple apps, just as we're used to on the Mac. It's easy to imagine wanting to use an iPad to read text in Mobile Safari, copy some text to a Pages document, and send that document to a colleague via Mail. That specific example may turn out to be possible with the current iPhone OS, but it points toward needing more ways for iPad apps to work together in the future."

Steve Jobs should be quoted "There is no reason for any individual to have multitasking in his iphone" Strikingly similar to Ken Olson president, the chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) said in 1977 "There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home"... good thing he was wrong and ain't around any more.
This is why I won't ever get one, they keep trying to shove down people's throats what they thinks its best for them... no thanks Mr. Jobs, freedom to me is more precious than [gollum]"..your PRECIOUSSS"[/gollum].
