iPhone SDK Limitations Inhibit AIM, Java Apps

For those who thought the announcements in Thursday's SDK Roadmap Event (such as the possibility of an AIM app) was just a little too good to be true, you might not have been that far off. As developers dive further into Apple's Human Interface Guidelines for the iPhone, restrictions are being found that could stop some apps from being created.

One such restriction found is that no 3rd party apps will be allowed to run in the background, meaning that the idea of replacing SMS with some sort of AIM app or the like will not be possible.
