    News flash guy, nearly all devices can do this. Its how android handles multitasking. Looks different depending on your ui/os version.

    Didn't you try that with the evo?

    Even BlackBerry does that, except you don't have to hold down the button for an eternal 4 seconds. It takes about 1/2 of a second. That's why BB remains superior to all other smartphone platforms.

    Cause holding it any longer requires a battery pull!

    (Sorry Mark, was just too easy)

    I knew I could do that with the EVO but the gs2 as you can see I clearly had no idea.
    Any other tricks you know of jf ?

    Hey guys!

    Did you all know that you can update all Androids by simply purchasing another?

    Awesome. And when your choosing, they also have 80 of them, even though only 2 are any good; the current Samsung and the next one.

    Nope, timed. 1/2 second on the menu button brings up active apps.

    Probably not . . . . Calendar? BlackBerry. Native PIM apps? BlackBerry. Keyboard? BlackBerry. Security? BlackBerry. Alarm Clock Sleep Mode? BlackBerry. Password keeper? BlackBerry. Screen Visibility in sunlight? BlackBerry. Physical build? Depends on which Android you're looking at. Screen size? Android. Availability of usable apps? Tie. Availability of stupid apps? Android. Device can be used without Data Plan? BlackBerry. Smartphone that the CEO of Google (maker of Android) uses? BlackBerry.

    Yes, at the corporate level RIM has missed their opportunity to launch newer, innovative devices with newer OS's, however that doesn't change the fact that their products are patently superior in many ways to the competition. I've done too many side-by-side comparisons between smartphones through the years to be fooled by the BB inferiority hype. However, they're not very good at being toys - and that's what sells these days.

    Don't provoke a bb loyalist. They will own you every time.

    +1 Mark.
