Well, yeah. So what?

As an iOS user I'm salivating at the thought of actually being able to IM people properly. Right now invariably it goes something like this:

[push notification: you have a new message!]

[tap on notification]

[IM app launches]

[go get a coffee]

[IM app launched! Retrieving your new messages...]

[go get a sandwich]

[here's that message!]

Real multitasking is a huge win, even a diehard iOS user like myself will admit. I don't care if they had to summon Cthulhu to make it work - but as long as it does, it's a great selling point.

Then that's a strange quirk of iOS- Android handles it just fine. The point is that they aren't the only OS with "true multitasking" out there.
