But the company keeps getting broad and fundamental patents on basic smartphone features. And its latest, granted today, is another doozy: the ability to swap to an app while maintaining a phone call.

Seems like something that shouldn’t be patented. Curious though, before the iPhone did any other phone allow this?

Thinking back I don’t recall ever trying to do this on another phone before the iPhone.
