iPhone will open to third-party developers this Feb 08
Appleâ€™s Steve Job is finally opening its doors to third party developers on iPhone and iPod Touch. The SDK will be available this coming February 2008.
“We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers,” said Jobs in Appleâ€™s Hot News.
Moreover, the company is taking some precautionary measures to protect iPhone users against silently spreading mobile malwares and viruses.
I guess the big hindsight question, as Nik Fletcher at tuaw.com adequately put, is: “What took you so long to let us at your beloved devices?”
