iPhone, Redux January 11, 2007

trackback

There’s been a flurry of activity regarding the iPhone over the last couple of days. In an addendum to my earlier post, I need to retract one point. It appears that the iPhone is going to be a closed system. As of now, Apple will not be allowing third party apps to run on the device. There are no hints of any kind of dev kit, and Apple has publically stated that only their apps will be allowed. I’m hoping this is only short-term. I think one of the ways to make the iPhone a hit will be to actively push third-party widgets. Especially given how easy it is to make these widgets. That’s been one of the drawbacks with other platforms.

We’ll see.
