Exactly why the iPhone is very responsive and Windows Mobile phones
aren't. Apple keeps things simple.
You need not worry about getting lost in applications if you have a
button hardwired to the home screen. Windows Mobile has this on the
smartphone edition, trouble is it's very fiddly to get back into any
application you've come out of.
Being able to see a list of what is open and being able to switch to
them is important for usability.
