good point but not really a valid comparison. The more accurate comparison is between what you just described on iOS, vs switching between 2 cards, as what you just described IS Apple's version of "multitasking" by the pause state.

Besides that, on webOS, if you needed to get back to photos that quickly, why close it at all? Especially with the TP since it has 1 gig of RAM.
