PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I doubt Research In Motion really knew what hit them back when the iPhone launched. I doubt they really knew what hit them when Android steamrolled the smartphone market. And, today, I still doubt they really know what the heck they are supposed to do to turn their sinking ship around. Update: RIM contacted us with a statement on the matter - they state everything in the BGR article is wrong. Read on for the full statement.

"The application would suspend, and when it ran again it would be at the same point it was before. True multitasking? No. But it worked great."

Just as in PalmOS. ;) But in palmos it was better. I can start typing a memo and, without saving it, switch to calendar, then again to memo and continue typing.


You could always do that in iOS as well.

It actually had to be implemented by the developer. Up till iOS 4, applications WOULD quit when going to the homescreen. That's why now they are quick to reload while before you'd have to wait a little.
