Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, announced in an open letter to the mobile community that Apple iPhone will finally get official third-part application support. The developer's SDK (Software Development Kit) will be ready in February though, as obviously the Apple team is working hard on creating a developer's platform that's open to new applications but at the same time secure in terms of personal data protection and virus-proof.
As expected, the developer's SDK would also be used for creating third-party applications for iPod Touch.
We are glad that Apple senior management has finally got its heads back on and will be opening the platform for developers worldwide. However, we feel that the security restrictions imposed due to the supposed virus/malware threats will be a ingenious way to put cuffs on the developers hands, if you get what we mean. That leaves us rather curious on how things would turn up in the end.
