Android FTW, just saying, if u ask me google is gonna keep the 1 up on apple just because its easier for them to, plus they have many different phone makers who can produce dozens of differnet phones a year where apple has trouble making one and by then a month after it is announced it is out of date

4.0 adds a reflective glass dock to the iphone's home screen just like on mac and 3.2 ipad lol I've had my iphone like this before the ipad was even announced I love jailbreaking. I swear apple gets ideas from jailbreak devs.

Remember when Apple said "H/W can't support" MMS on iPhone2G? And it turns out, it really does (enabled via JB).

Wow, good thing this entire article was speculation... Could never understand why people get upset over speculation, especially when it turns out to be false...

Apple with the phones and their computer lines are backed by a great customer service. They can do this because they control the hardware it gets put on and the OS is built completely for the hardware.

Apple would provide background services for music streaming (for applications such as online radios, music players), location tracking (for GPSs such as TomTom, social networking applications), VOIP services (for applications such as Skype), task completion services (for data download/upload for example) and notifications (for online chat type of applications for example) . Most applications only need to be able to save the state they are at and to resume from when brought to the foreground (should apply to applications such as office documents, applications in the reference category, games such as tetris/sudoko/tap tap/crack code/minesweeper).
What Apple does not allow is to keep alive any services besides those provided by it. A phone is not a PC due to the small screen size (unless you allow widgets, which Apple doesn't) and non-PC class processor. Therefore, it makes sense to design multitasking specifically to consider these two characteristics. The key things to the end users is that both the smart multitasking of Apple and the "true multitasking" that we experience gives very similar experience - unless you can think of any specific situations that are not covered by all the background services that Apple provides. Can you think of any such applications (other than widgets)?

It's not coming to the older iPhones, only 3GS, the other models get some aspects of 4.0 but not the multitasking.
