There isn't a direct equivalent to minimizing in the tablet UI. It has a built in gesture for app switching -- swipe up from the bottom of the "screen." You shouldn't need to add a button to do it.

Keep in mind when using the swipe gestures in the simulator you need to "swipe" holding the left-mouse button (on windows) from outside the screen of the playbook going onto the screen. So from the black part of the screen in VMWare, onto the actual playbook screen in the simulator.


It is a bit tricky at first, but really neat when you get it going with the multi-tasking.
