Windows Phone 7 will get multitasking sometime in the future

Posted on Tuesday, March 16 2010 @ 17:48:50 CET by

Microsoft confirmed the Windows Phone 7 platform will not support multitasking at launch and that all apps will have to be installed from the Windows Phone Marketplace. The company will mimic Apple and go for a much more controlled experience.
Microsoft needed to exercise some control to provide a great set of consumer experiences, Kindel said. And notice that word "consumer" – Microsoft isn't offering much to enterprise IT folks with this release of Windows Phone 7. This is a consumer device.

Like the iPhone, Windows Phone 7 won't support third-party apps being able to run in the background. But third parties will get access to a wider range of services than are available on the iPhone. For instance, Pandora could stream in the background using a special background-music service, Kindel said. But VoIP apps will be limited; there won't be a service to allow third-party apps to access telephony in the background.

Microsoft doesn't have anything against background processing – they just need to find a way to do it that doesn't kill responsiveness and battery life. They're still working on the issue, Kindel said.
