    Just saw a iphone commercial making it seem as it can multitask. Saying you can do all these things while you are on hold w someone on the phone. Pre is still missing the boat on showing the average person what it can truly do and the iphone cant.

    The Iphone can multitask, but not like webos. It's limit is playing a game or web browsing while playing music.

    The iPhone's lack of multitasking is artificially imposed by Apple and not a limitation of the device.. "This behavior is prevented by the iPhone OS' security model, which is designed to close the current app whenever the user returns to the Home screen or accepts an incoming call. This design prevents apps from being able to run in the background without the user knowing, and therefore erases any real potential for spyware, adware and viruses."

    "The system's phone, SMS, email, iPod, voice recorder, Nike+, and certain other bundled apps can continue in the background while the user launches another app. However, third party titles obtained from the App Store (including apps from Apple, such as Remote or iDisk) can not be launched at the same time."
