The best part is that it's intentionally disabled functionality, it's not like the hardware is incapable of multitasking due to constraints or something.
I'm hoping either:
A. Jailbreaking it and loading some custom OS that users put together with give if the functionality it needs
B. Apple will cave to the massive complaints regarding these basic things and give in updating the os and browser.
I don't know how much I care about multi tasking if the machine can't load basic apps like word, excel, etc. Honestly I would rather see MS show up with something soon based on that demo of a touch screen system they showed off a few years back. Was something similar to this ipad touch but built for a tabletop.
The future is going to rock when we can have a fully functional computer in the form of something like an ipad. (load whatever os, aka windows, you want, apps, usb, the whole deal)
LOL, you know what apple did? They said well if we can add those features to the iphone and people love it, lets do it to a digital picture frame! That is what this is, a digital picture frame with the increased functionality of an iphone vs a phone. They should have called it ipic.
