This is just another step closer to achieving something big. Windows Phone 7 may be looking at a future much like that of the iPhone having features like multi tasking available even before it was implemented by Apple.
However Microsoft unlike Apple has been driven at building based on their customer feedback. It will be interesting to see where this heads.
