At the onedotzero event, I remember trying to get the N900 to crash with low memory errors or slow down. I couldn’t. MySymbian proves this in the video below where the N900 is pushed to multitask all available apps. Where most others would have frozen, crashed or killed other applications to open a new one, […]
