I checked out the Telstra HTC Desire in Aussie and am quite keen on getting this handset but just want to know a little more about the multitasking in Android.
Can you run multiple background apps that use data and can bring up alerts (make the phone beep, show a msg on the home screen) at the same time. E.g. leaving gmail and a twitter client running in the background all the time while also playing music?
From what I have read of the iPhone OS this won't be possible? I.e. you won't be able to leave Tweetie running and updating every 30sec while playing music or using maps or any other app?
