    Steve Jobs recently announced an SDK (Software Development Kit) for the iPhone/ iPod Touch. This will allow developers to develop applications and games to be run on the iPhone/ iPod touch firmware. It is expected to be released in January/ February 2008. You as a consumer will not be able to obtain the SDK.

    Software and Game Developers. (The big time, real deal companies) not consumers.

    But surely if consumers can get hold of it, they will be able to start develpoing their own apps a lot easier, rather than keep requestiong things here...

    True, but it's going to cost alot of money, therefore Applications will, in turn, cost money.
