    For example, can I have AIM & internet open at the same time? Or not yet? Is it coming? Can you use iTunes and browse the internet/play games at the same time?

    Os 4 will be out by the end of the summer

    I'm using it on my iPhone.
    Apps have to build in multitasking, it won't just automatically work on all apps.

    Good info... I did not know the apps have to support it, makes sense though....

    I am sure most app developers will do the deed ASAP....

    Which means we will still have to jailbreak.

    You can play itunes and surf at the same time. There are other Appl apps that support multitasking, but 4.0 will expand that.
