Hi there I am new to this forum, and Android. I'm thinking to buy Samsung Galaxy S (i9000) and begin to develop some apps for that platform. Before I do, I would like to know more about os. I have been searching over the net various information (Android and SGS specific) but I haven't managed to find answer to this question: Correct me if I am wrong, but when Android multitask applications, they all do running in background until that when I start some new app, and there is no enough RAM memory available, OS automatically closes some active app. Is there any way to prevent this? I would like more to OS prevent me from launching that app instead killing active one (eg. to popup message that there is no enough RAM). I don't care if I need to root/patch/modify phone as long it will provide me multitasking like on PC (or Symbian, if anyone have experience with that). Also I am loyal Symbian user, but I don't like what they have done to Symbian now. Thats why I am seeking for alternative (Android). Thanks for any help.
