Apple may (or may not) be mulling background apps for the iPhone
I dont get it - why if every other mobile OS out there can run background apps is it so difficult for the iPhone.
Dont get me wrong I'm jealous of the voloume of iPhone apps but this and no keyboard is pretty much a killer for me (originally it was also the fact that you cant get MS Activesync email to work (I run a MS Exchange server for my home personal email and it works fantastic with my htc8525) but this got fixed with the iPhone 2.0 software update http://www.apple.com/iphone/enterprise).
I'm also not sure i'm comfortable tithe Jobs nanny state about what apps i can and cant run on my handset, but i know that i would have my handset jailbreaked within the first day so this isn't such a big deal.
I'm contemplating it but wont make a decision until the HTC Touch pro 2 gets released in July.
