    "iPhone runs OS X!"
    Huge cheers. "Why would we want to run such a sophisticated OS on a mobile device? It's got everything we need. Multitasking, networking, power management, graphics, security, video, graphics, audio core animation..."

    Multitasking?!?!

    Hmmmm...

    I just have to laugh at this because nobody realized 'multitasking; would be ipod and safari and mail running in the background.

    Have to disagree. At the time that is exactly what every body was thinking because there were no third party apps of any kind.

    I see your point, but, Apple had a 2.0 gameplan most likely and new the multitasking they were talking about was different. But to contradict myself, they DID have to set the bar someplace.

    Or maybe they were referring to simultaneous voice & data. That's honestly true-multitasking as both apps (phone & data app) are being used at the same time

    iPhone 1.0 could very much multi-task, it didn't run any third party apps, so, multitasking was achieved by:
    iPod
    Safari
    Mail
    Clock (timers, alarms)
    Phone + Data

    So yeah. When I read the quote I was like WTF but then I remembered, 1.0 did multitask as much as it needed to.
