Glenn Fleishman: Software Kit for iPhone, iPod touch Applications Set for February 2008. (I)t will be interesting to see what the iPhone hacking community does. I suspect they’ll continue to explore the innards of iPhone 1.1.1, both to bring back existing third party applications for the four months and to figure out how to unlock the iPhone again. The final reason hackers won’t just wait patiently until February? Because hacking the iPhone is a challenge.
Still more questions than answers. Apple’s control-freakery with the iPhone doesn’t inspire confidence, yet, that it’ll ultimately be truly open. Still, this is unquestionably a positive move.
