We’re nearing the close of our challenge wherein you can Win a Nokia Windows Phone. The rules are detailed in the aforelinked post. Tonight is question 10, the penultimate question with only Monday after the weekend remaining.

Question 10

The Mango update for Windows Phone brought with it better support for multi-tasking. Now in addition to the back-stack of applications that the user can switch through, applications are able to schedule some tasks to run in the background to give the illusion of multi-tasking.
