Hold on - the iPad, the iPhone, the iTouch all have multitasking. You can listen to your iPod while you write an email. You can send an email and, before it finishes, start playing a game. The thing that it doesn't have is multitasking for every application. I'd argue that that's something most people don't need. However, I wish Apple would open it up to other apps (like Pandora, for example).
