62 Applications Running Simultaneously on Symbian OS; Take that iPhone! (Video)

If some of you rolled your eyes hearing that the iPhone will receive multitasking via the new OS, we’ll show you that other platforms have long time used this concept of running apps simultaneously. Even good old Symbian is capable of such a feat, as you can see in the video below, showing the OS running no less than 62 full apps at the same time:

It all happens on Samsung i8910 HD and credits go out to Andy, aka HyperX. Apparently, the device is using modified firmware and we learn that 194MB of free RAM were available for this task. S60 running so many apps means that Android or webOS should also have the power to reach the same performance, right?
