iPhone will be open to developers!

The Big in Japan team let out a cheer today when Apple announced that we will get access to the iPhone via web applications.  Development for typical phones require complex SDK development, but Apple has decided to open the platform and allow firms like Big in Japan access the phone’s functions such as ‘making calls, sending emails while connecting to Google Maps.  It is not clear how the iPhone’s browser will expose the Domain Object Model to allow phone-specific functionality.  In a related move, Apple released Safari for Windows.  Presumably this will allow non-Mac developers to build applications for the iPhone without using an emulator.  Nice work Apple!
