Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The SDK constraints are justified in terms of hardware resource constraints. Well, yes.

the main uses of multitasking TBG identifies are available: Well, yes, where "main uses" means application functionality (e.g. platform-dependent but probably "limited edition" versions of PC software.) though not necessarily sufficient storage media (e.g. local hard drive or remote server rental, ergo calls to).

Abandoning keyboard input and restricting output facilities (datatypes, protocols) are profound (perhaps justified) differentiating feature of the i* product line (pad, phone,"stereo") among all electronic devices. I think iPad is headed straight for Palm Hell. Or...

the interface is up to much: intrusive dialog box: Well, yes, subsequently. Interface development I think points primarily to adaption to peripheral hardware devices, which is what TBG mentions. Cannibal territory within corporate divisions.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
