    probably pissed that the iPhone, while on version 3.0, can't multitask like the palm pre, on version 1.0.x, can.
     
  3. What's the need for multitasking when the 3GS can open and close programs as fast as the pre can switch between them?

    so on your computer you open and close a new window for everything you're doing, one at a time?

    oh, time to watch youtube, better close this word document. time to respond to this email, better close this xxxxxxxx


    i guess that makes sense doing it on your phone then bro
     
  5. Well, computers are plugged into walls, and they have much more processing power and RAM. Comparing cell phones to modern computers is silly. Other than letting people complain about something, what is the disadvantage to not having multitasking on the 3GS? Have you actually used one? It's fast as hell.

    Holy thread hijack!

    Be nice to run, say, IM and still be able to surf the interwebs while your moron friends ping you with randomness. Not like you really need massive processing power on the go, but multitasking is a real need.
     
  7. Have you used the 3GS either? Any decent IM program has push notification, so when your friend messages you the message pops up in a little notification winodw, then you just hit the "view" button on screen and it exits your browser and takes you to the IM, in about 1 second. Then, when you're done with the IM you hit the home button, then your browser button and again, about 1 second later you're right back where you were.

    no you're right

    I forgot you don't need multitasking because steve jobs said you didn't

    just like you don't need a user-replaceable battery either.
     
  10. Well, since you can't actually offer me a reason why it provides for a lesser user experience, I'm going to conclude that you really can't come up with one, and you're just complaining for the hell of it.

    there are many uses for multitasking, for example:

    listening to slacker, pandora, or last.fm while playing a game or reading the news
    an app running in the background that will notify you that a speed trap/camera is ahead (using gps)
    google latitude automatic location update
    ...etc....

    i'm sure apple doesnt allow it for a reason, after all...if there arent any more improvements...they cant get you to buy a new one every year

    I run an ATT Tilt flashed too HTC TouchFlo rom, I can have my email open, google maps, youtube, texting, word, TimeTracker, and still have 90mb of ram left. And takes maybe 1/2sec to switch between them.

    The pre has none of these apps. But that's because the phone and OS is not yet a month old. Palm isn't even really finished with the SDK yet, as they've only released the unfinished version to few devs, although that number is growing. This was also leaked recently so things should pick up.

    Got the old and busted 3G, which I see no need to upgrade. 'Guess I could upgrade the firmware and see if I get any of the new sexiness...
