Tryfen writes: As patent trials rage across the globe, it has become clear that smartphone companies are engaged in Mutually Assured Destruction. What's the endgame here?

Will companies withdraw — voluntarily or otherwise — from the smartphone space?

make the simple next step of supporting multitasking."
