    HTC Desire HD style...

    Watch the above video, it's brilliant, notifications and multitasking are combined into an easy pull down menu.

    I love Android's notifications menu, it makes the status bar come alive, on the iPhone is feels dead. I wish Apple would implement the above method of combined multitasking/notifications. It's so much more convenient, informative, faster and comfortable than double tapping on the home buttom.

    Come on Apple, steal this.

    And also widgets.

    LOL... I seem to recall Apple suing HTC last year for stealing the feature of swiping a "predefined path" to unlock a touch-screen device, or something along those lines. Strangely, they only went after HTC though and not Google... even though both do the same thing... and the stock Android unlock motion is nearly identical the iPhone's, whereas HTC's interface uses a downward motion...

    Ah well. Just saying... I'm sure Apple would get jumped on very quickly if they "stole" this idea.

    That's nice but does not beat the fully integrated real though IMO.

    DDustiNN, that's too bad, this is a great implementation of both multitasking and notifications.

    #5 LED notification like the HTC Desire would suffice for me.

    At least then I don't have to keep waking the phone.
