What do people use multi-tasking for on Symbian phones -
Let me think. An example of a real-world use case from a Symbian user: Listening to music (and optionally Scrobbling it) in the background whilst Web browsing, running a Twitter client, using Push IMAP, and using an IRC client. You can't do that on a lousy iPhone, and on Android, you'd have stuttering audio, and your battery would go flat quickly. Not so on the Symbian Platform, if that answers your question. -
Try taking a photo whilst listening to music on an Android device too - you'll get a useless image, and skipping or paused audio, thanks to the fact that the underlying kernel and other subsystems aren't tuned very well. (See
where that's discussed in detail). -
Oh, and you don't have to resort to a load of unsupported, warranty-voiding hacks to use tethering, change the home screen wallpaper or install software from an "unofficial" source. Video recording, MMS, copy-and-paste, and other useful features have been supported for eons, too. -
