It is interesting to note that the newest iPhone OS will support some type of multi-tasking... and the new Windows Mobile 7 has hinted about going away from multi-taking (from what I read, it really sounds similar to the iPhone, certain things will be allowed to multi-task while other things will not). In the case of Windows 7 mobile Microsoft says this is to prolong battery life. I can understand that. I guess we once again find ourselves back to the same battle we found ourselves fighting 10 years ago... Cell phone battery life. Here's to hoping new evolving battery tech will allow us to have smart phones with large bright screens that can run for days.
