One constant criticism for Apple’s iPhone has been that the OS does not allow multitasking, this is also the case with the recently unveiled Apple iPad.
Some details regarding Windows Phone 7 OS have leaked on SlashGear, most of the leaked details are positive, however surprisingly there seems be no multitasking.
The drawbacks from not offering multitasking in my opinion far outweigh the benefits, whilst it is good for battery life it in my opinion strongly restricts the devices functionality.
It is thought that Windows Phone 7 will debut at the ‘Mobile World Congress 2010’ which takes place pretty soon, although it seems as if the OS is still not finished it is at least ‘taking shape’.
Other details regarding the OS are still unconfirmed, however there is talk of an updated user interface with is apparently codenamed “METRO”, this is apparently borrowed from the Zune platform.
Finally there is said to be integration of both the Zune and Xbox 360, exactly what will synchronize between the OS and these devices is currently unknown, however there should be access to your Xbox 360 gamertag, achievements and friends, for more details check out SlashGear.
Will the lack of multitasking put you off Windows Phone 7 devices?
