As for multitasking, the G Pad offers two helpful tools:
* With Qslide, you get easy access to three apps at once. With a slider, you can make two of the apps semi-transparent while working on the third. It just takes a quick adjustment on the slider to make the first two apps reappear in the foreground. This feature makes it possible to be writing an email while retaining quick access to a calculator and Web browser that appear and disappear as you need to reference them. Multiple apps can be running simultaneously on most other Android devices and the iPad, too, but you can see and work with only one at a time. Unfortunately, Qslide for now works with only eight apps, and few of them fit my day-to-day needs.
* With Slide Aside, you can push one of three apps to the side by swiping to the left with three fingers. Swipe to the right to find those hidden apps slide out like a drawer. You then pick the one you want to work with. Unlike Qslide, it worked with all the apps I tried.
