multitasking OS?

i read somewhere(i think it was the SE page) that this could do 3 diferent tasks at a time, the example they give was showing the phone with a game, they press a button and it takes them to a text message, they press it again and it takes em to the music player, they press it again and they go back to the game almost instantly
