PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "There is a lot of misconception around support for multitasking in the iPhone and its giant cousin, the iPad. What follows is my analysis of the situation. I am not privy to any insider Apple information. Moreover, while my knowledge is certainly colored by my work on Android, I'm not drawing a comparison or using any Google-specific knowledge." Interesting stuff about how Android does multitasking.

I have iPod Touch(without volume buttons), so if I'm using some application and want to adjust volume... I have to exit the application and restart it. And that is extremely annoying! That is the cost of multitasking, not multiple running programs at the same time, but returning to the same state where you left off.
