Well Apple finally touts a new operating system for their iPhone and iTouch devices.

The iPhone OS 4 multitasking functionality is not as advanced as some smartphones can deliver, he added. It is based on a multitasking tray that lets users switch between software or a certain service — say, continuing to listen to streaming music while purchasing a song from iTunes or downloading an app or checking email.

“Basically, this is catch-up to what is available on the Android and other platforms,” said Jackson.

Since I don’t own an iPhone I cannot speak for anything, but I gather it will make the device much more useful, i love BlackBerry multitasking, who could go without? Obviously Apple users! Along with multitasking, the mail client now is able to handle multiple accounts in one folder, along with drag and drop abilities.
