Multitasking is possible When you are using the desktop or laptop. However, with the advent of new technology, you can do multitasking with the latest mobile devices. Here, you can learn how to do multitasking on the mobile phone.
Multitasking is nothing but doing more than one task at a time. For example, if you are watching a movie, you would need to pause it to read the text you received. You cannot do both the task at the same time. However, with the latest Android devices, you can do multitasking.
Tablets run by Windows are capable to running many apps side by side. However, Windows phone do not have the option. Even Apple devices do not have that feature.

Again, there is a limitation on the type of app you run. ie. you can run only selected application and not all.
