IF OS4.0 does allow multitasking.. they still haven't solved the reason they disallowed it in the first place.. underpowered hardware...
Actually, iPhone OS had multitasking. It always has supported it.
Also, you should note that both WebOS and Android sucked battery life with multitasking. Android was better at conserving, to be sure. WebOS and Palm Pre had massive battery life issues at launch.
4.0 does allow multitasking as people have pointed out. So, looks like I'm int he market for a new phone or touch to replace my 1G touch.
I may go back and address some claims earlier, time permitting.
