I was going by what people say that there isn't any multi-tasking or copy and paste on the devices.
I was waiting to get a Touch if and when the capacity increased as my music collection is quite large and my iPod Classic is doing fine right now.
Unfortunately the iPad suffers too from poor storage capacity, so I won't find much use for it. Also the fact that I have to buy apps to get any basic function like copy and paste.
Perhaps when the SDXC cards of up to 2TB roll out the devices will change accordingly.
Both the iPhone and the Touch have C/paste, and have for a while now. I don't know why you would think they don't. It's not likely, with iwork being available for this, that it doesn't have it as well.
Multitasking is there as well for the phone and Touch, just not for most third party apps. Likely the iPad isn't worse in this aspect.
We don't know what OS 4 will have in late June. Multitasking is likely, but not a lock. Whether any older devices get is is also possible, but not certain.
We've been discussing this for quite a while as well. You've been around, you must be familiar with this.
There is a photo kit for the iPad, and it might work on the iPhone/Touch as well. It has two adapters. both plug into the 30 pin slot. One has a USB 2 connector, and the other one for SD cards. Whether we will be able to have storage go the other way is something we'll find out.
