Multi Window allows you to easily complete multiple tasks on one screen. For example, you can take notes while watching a video, or search the web and check SMS messages simultaneously.Samsung is working on a Multi-Window interface for the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 devices. The feature not found on any other tablet lets users run applications side-by-side with features similar to Window/Mac application frame (Title bar, maximize, close and drag functions). This super handy feature should be available on Samsung tablets soon but other android users need not worry as "Cornerstone" is a similar solution for other devices is also in works.
