The implications are huge, as you can not only dock a calculator handy while working on a spreadsheet, or browse for something while in an app, as the somewhat limited floating app suites so far, but actually have all the widgets you currently employ and love on your homescreens, pinned to the front of the display, while you are doing something else underneath...

Awesome! Now we're see real innovation in helpful, productive ways from Android developers, good job!
I find this to be a significant achievement and intergrated, native support will turn our mobile devices into engines of productivity and creation.

Ok, maybe I'll try this. Sounds awesome! I always wanted to be able to overlay my PowerAMP widgets.
