How Multitasking Works In Windows Phone 7

This video provides you an overview of what you can expect from multi-tasking in Windows Phone 7. To initiate “fast task switcher”, you simply have to hold the back button. This brings up cards, which you can easily swipe to access different apps. The metaphor is similar to how Apple’s iOS handles multitasking, but they show a tray of apps at the bottom as opposed to a card view of open apps.
