Quite Right! What better way for Apple to "enhance" the new product so soon after launch than to announce that it will get even better when...It doesnt mean a future software update wont include multitasking.
Exactly Evil, and the iPad JB is probably not far off.jailbreak your phone if you want it so bad and stop wining.

The iPad isn't out yet, so you don't know if it has multi tasking or not. No one knows. It's just speculation at this point.How long have we been saying "maybe multitasking will be in the next update!!!!"
Apple has dropped the ball on this BIG TIME.
The device is definitely powerful enough to multitask, play flash, run full desktop apps but what do they do?
Exactly what I think.The iPad will be shipping in 60 days. That's in March. 3.0 was displayed in March. I believe we'll have a conference in March, showcasing 4.0 for both the iPhone and iPad, with multitasking, and some other new features. Then the iPad can release with those features.
Once 3.2 is JBed I willl seriously look into buying one...Exactly Evil, and the iPad JB is probably not far off.
I love the multitask feature from Cydia, it allows me to keep Pandora and Skype resident while switching to other tasks. It does contribute to battery drain, but leaving it in the dock while working is a viable option for me.
you must not have read any of the hands-on reviews of the iPad.NOTHING IN THE KEYNOTE EVEN SAID THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE MULTI TASKING ON THE IPAD!!! People are just assuming it!!!
