That's not really the way to think about it - with a new operating system like Windows CE, which is going to run on mobile phones, the user needs to have the power to interrupt any application. For example with a phone call or an urgent reminder.
A game can be paused, but a phone call can't - I think a game should pause itself if it gets a WM_KILLFOCUS message.

Not like good old DOS days I admit - but quite exciting in a different way I think!

Absolutely! Let's hop the new HP iPaq fix the problem. I hate the joypad on the Jornada, it's so crappy and clicky!
On the 38xx I don't understand why they had to flip the screen at all: aren't the cases the same?
