    Personally I hope they goto one simple branding, Windows. Make the only difference be the hardware.

    I hope that WP9 will include a real multitasking system, the actual one is not that bad but it can be better
    I disagree, full multitasking is a massive battery drain. Just look at the HTC One M8 for Android vs. the HTC One M8 for Windows as an example, the current way of tomb stoning apps in the background is the best way to go.
    a5cent and mikeycl like this.

    I agree, been saying that for some time now. It makes too much sense.

    Only one mobile OS has real multitasking - BB10 and it's not causing massive battery drain at all. Android, iOS, WP - I won't call it multitasking, rather ability to restore old tasks from background.

    BB10 has a halfway house between tomb stoning and real multitasking, Android has real multitasking as it has to update widgets in real time, which means that apps have to run constantly in the background.

    WP and iOS have tomb stoning which is great for battery life, but resuming an app takes a lot longer. Both WP and iOS have background tasks that run periodically to get email and, on WP, update live tiles among other things.
    sez who and hprvez like this.

    Nope. It's the opposite. BB10 offers real multitasking. I don't know if you had any contact with this platform but I've used it nearly a year and apps in background can run in real time while you are using other apps. Up to 8 running apps in background. You can look for proof on YT.
    Android is halfway between tomb stoning and real multitasking. By default it is tomb stoning and it happens in, let's say, 90% of apps. There are some that require real multitasking and yeah, it works, but I've seen this only in small amount of apps.
    I don't know about WP really, because I'm just starting developing for this platform, but yes, it looks like typical tomb stoning.

    Fair enough but you said it yourself, BB10 can only have 8 apps running in the background otherwise its battery life drops to Android levels. The Z10 has poor battery life anyway, you just have to look at the Crackberry forums.

    As a long time WP user I can tell you that WP, just like iOS, uses tomb stoning.
