If you haven’t seen it yet, the new iPhone looks awesome. The press out of MacWorld has been crazy, and the iPhone is probably the biggest news. But what makes it most interesting for me is that the phone is running OSX and has the webkit engine as well as Safari right on the phone.
What does this mean? Well, in theory, Apollo could very easily be ported over to the iPhone. I’m not sure if the version of OSX for the phone is crippled in any way (I would assume so) but since the goal all along was to bring Apollo to mobile devices, this seems like it would be a great partnership.
The other thing I wondered about is if we’ll see “WPF/E” on the iPhone. It would be another video codec (so the iPhone could have Flash, QuickTime and Windows Media) as well as the possibility of writing managed code for the OSX version of iPhone. Fun times ahead.
