Apple iPhone, iPad to soon get long-sought multitasking

Apple's iPhone 3GS, iPad and newer iPod Touch devices will soon be able to run more than one non-Apple application at a time.

A software upgrade from Apple (AAPL) will let users play Internet radio Pandora while searching restaurant listings, for example.

The ability to multitask has long been on the wish list of Apple customers and developers.

The story is too old to be commented.
