I haven't even gotten the 3G I ordered and I was already disappointed in not being able to multi-task with it and now I can't be happier after Steve's announcement today. I know we have to wait (again) but these improvements will be amazing. I've already downloaded a ton of apps to my computer in the anticipation of syncing up to the iPad and being able to run serveral at one time.
Since I'm waiting for my 3G version you'll nitice my graphic has the "Coming Soon" over it. It's painful to wait.
