Android has been being available for tablets for a long time now, but it never really succeed in letting you do multiple things at once as you would on a proper computer. With CyanogenMod 9, though, multitasking could get a lot more easier and intuitive thanks to an application called Cornerstone.

Created by the developers at Onskreen, Cornerstone is quite a simple way of working with up to three different apps visible on the screen. And if everything goes well, we can expect to see it in the future release of CyanogenMod 9.

The concept behind Cornerstone is simple and that’s what makes it so practical. A little pull-out drawer bar sits on the right side of the screen and with a single tap it expands to hold up to two additional apps, which are ready to go right away. Of course, it’s up to you to choose the additional apps. Check out this video to see the app in action.

But before it gets included in the final CyanogenMod 9 release, the dev team wants to ensure that Cornerstone is as stable as possible. Until then, you can check Oneskreen’s website and follow the development of the open source app.

don't see this being that great on 7" tablets

Depends if you in portrait or landscape mode. Don't think it will be such a big issue esp seeing that applications can work on phones with 320x240 like the Wildfire.

This is one of those Open source features I would loooove to move into the main dev tree to be honest. I also dont think Google have a choice anyway seeing that they will need this soon to compete against Windows 8 that have a similar effect built into Metro.
