I have a question about the SDK, I hear that it is coming out in FEB. Does this mean that developers will get it in FEB? or we should start seeing programs in FEB?
If they are just getting it would it be safe to say we will not see any Native(Apple Approved) Applications for a few months?

Well iPhone software version 2.0 doesn't come out until then, nor will the Apple AppStore be implemented. So while software may be ready before then, you won't be able to get it/use it.

That source would be Apple. Developers can develop as many apps as they want right now with the SDK - however the AppStore will not be available until June, which will deliver the apps. This way, when it is released, there will be tons of available downloads.

True dat. Electronic Arts wrote Spore, an 18-level game with touch interface, in just a couple of days. Epocrates already has a working prototype (I'm thrilled!). Etc., etc. We should have an abundance of good stuff this summer.

It remains to be seen if we'll be able to d/l apps from the mobile iTMS, the way we now can with audio. I'm hoping. If so, the upcoming 3G iPhone will end up costing me a lot more than the purchase price! :p
