11:07AM - "Devs are going to ask -- this is great! But what's the DEAL? What's the businesss deal. We've got a great biz deal for devs: you pick the price you want to sell your app at. The dev gets 70% of the revenues right off the top, we keep 30% to pay for running the app store. No CC fees or hosting fees or marketing fees for hosting the app, devs get 70% paid monthly."


does this mean that we will pay a monthly fee for the apps... i hate that.. i rather just buy it and be done with it..

No, it just means developers decide what to sell their software for, Apple distributes it and takes %30 from the developer. The price will be flat rate.

I am really pissed and heated with Apple. I cant believe they had everyone thinking there were apps available today and we have to wait until june. What was the point of even telling us about it?

Take a deep breath. They have to announce it to developers before they can... ya know... develop anything. It's not like they could do that sort of thing in secret. Today wasn't about you or me... June will be.

They didn't tell you to get excited... you just did.

Yeah, you could put on an invisible shield - that'll take at least one month...
LOL! I'm about to replace the skin on my iPhone, and I'm dreading the marathon session it will take.

I sure the heck am glad I didn't wait to jailbreak.

I think it's time to bombard the Apple iPhone Feedback again on the Apple Website. They have to give us MMS, Video, Cut & Paste. I don't mean to not be grateful for what they have already done with this amazing phone but please, it's on even the cheapest, crapiest phone you can buy, why not the iPhone.:(
