iPhone therefore iAm?

Any word out there on 3rd party development for the iPhone ... yet?

I suppose if the browser supports javascript there are some possibilities - but specifically I am interested in Flash or Java development.

    I think that any apple software developer could write code for the
    iphone -- it runs os x. You could especially write widgets pretty
    easily. And as osx ships with Java and Flash, I suppose anything goes...

    Hi Jason,

    Presently, it doesn't look good...

    I saw this:
    Noted analyst and Engadget pal Michael Gartenberg stated that the iPhone is
    first party software ONLY -- i.e. not a smartphone by conventional terms,
    being that a smartphone is a platform device that allows software to be
    installed.

    here:
    <http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/09/the-iphone-is-not-a-smartphone/>

    and this:
    The Apple reps at MacWorld are telling people that you won't be able to
    install your own software on the iPhone.

    People have only been out of NDA 24 hours. Give them time. ;-)

    I think that the desktop widgets system introduced with 10.4 were
    targeted at precisely this kind of device. So that's JavaScript + their
    canvas class.
