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.

Many applications have both a phone and a tablet user interface, and you could easily show two phone applications side-by-side on a tablet.


Isn't this exactly what Ubuntu wants to do on the tablet -- split the screen among a tablet and a phone application? I don't know if it is already working, though.
