We talked extensively about the upcoming multitasking feature in Windows Phone 7 both in this post and in the podcast, but see it for yourself in this demo video from the Ballmer keynote speech here in Barcelona.
For us, we're quite happy with the implementation as it offers both speed, convenience and preservers battery life. We look forward to see how the code evolves as the update nears completion.

I am telling you WP7 is the best OS out right now. It fresh, fast, different, and soon will be updated to kill the iphone.
OMFG I want this god damn update now *drooool*Yeah I wanted WebOS when it first came but they thought Aust wasn't worth it. Now HP own them and they to snub their nose at us again.I got my Mozart now I want my nodo and mango update1 :D
dont get me wrong i am so happy that multitasking is coming our way but it doesnt look as nice as webOS but i still want this update now.
I don't know if the phones would be able to handle it, but, if MS wants to use a look they already came up with for visual app switching, they should adapt a version of Flip 3D that they've had on Windows desktop since Vista. It's more flash than substance, but they wouldn't be seen as "copying" anyone else's look.
wonder why he present the demo like none of us know what multitasking is?I hope they make the multitasking interface nicer before release>
