    I let them hold the Pre, then tell them that I can use Sprint navigation, listen to Pandora and check the weather all at the same time. I show them the wave and since I use advanced gestures I switch between a few running applications. If they are in IT, I tell them that the applications are HTML pages using HTML 5 data store methods. Finally I tell them that the Sprint data network is faster than the other major data networks.

    Just telling them that you don't have to fight all the iPhone users for bandwidth should be enough to convince most IT people!

    What I'm getting at is saying that you old phone, or the iPhone, or WinMo phones technically do run multiple process simultaneously is SO not the point. It's not the what, it's the how that makes it worth talking about.

    I see a 100 threads asking this same question talking about the same thing... So, they must be missing the point when you try and tell someone why the PRE is so good.

    SO, I think we need to have a VISUAL REFERENCE.

    Do this. Walk up to the person and tell them to stand there. Tell them to do nothing but stand there and smile. Then say, "your name is IPHONE."

    Take 3 steps back and point to yourself and say... "I'M PRE"...

    Start yelling, smiling, jumping up and down, waving, run around in circles, do kart wheels, take a sip of soda.

    THEN STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING and ask them.

    YOU TELL ME WHAT LOOKS MORE INTERESTING AND EXCITING. Then walk away into the sunset.

    I always wondered about the mulittasking on the pre vs other phones, I know for sure on winmo, I would have to close out a program in order to access another so multitasking was not happening.

    on webOS I can start an app start another app and so on, to access the app again all I need to do is swipe left to right or right to left and the open app will appear where I left off. It is very easy to "swipe" back and forth between other programs.

    Can someone explain the process how android handles mutitasking? or BB which I'm assuming is on the pearl.

    Windows Mobile actually does multitask. In fact, you're only option is to multitask and Microsoft wont actually sign your application if it has a way of closing itself. When you hit that little X in the corner, your app just gets minimized. To get back to it, you just need to hit the icon again or have an application that shows you everything that is running.

    Microsoft's philosophy was that multi-tasking was a no brainer but memory management should never be up to the user. The problem with this, of course, was that if you ran a lot of applications things tended to get pretty slow.

    Someone might correct me on this, but on Android it seems to be pretty much the same story. When you think you're closing something you're actually minimizing it. The difference here is that it will actually close the 5th or 6th oldest program whenever you open a new one. So it stays there in memory until you've opened several other programs. You can switch back by holding the home button on the home screen (I think) or clicking on the apps icon again.

    Never used a blackberry because I'm not a loser.

    The truth is a lot of phones out there multitask, but none works intuitive.

    That's the HUGE difference.
