"Palm's Card system is the exact antithesis of this (the iPhone not being capable of multitasking), not only running several applications in the background, but showing them in an active state on the deck-of-cards style home screen. This way you can have messages sent from IM services or social networking sites sent to your phone while you type emails, surf the web or take a phone call."

"The difference between the European and Sprint Pre's is common to all EVDO and UMTS phones. EVDO networks like those from Sprint and Verizon Wireless can't run voice and data streams at the same time, so EVDO phones have to pause Internet connections temporarily while they make phone calls. UMTS phones can run voice and data at the same time. The Sprint Pre will be able to make phone calls while surfing the Web using Wi-Fi, just not with 3G."
