Open Sesame May 13, 2007

One of the sticking points about the iPhone with a lot of industry pundits is the fact that, in true Apple fashion, it’s a closed architecture. Most critics predict that despite the hype and hullabaloo surrounding the product, this refusal to play ball will be the iPhone’s ultimate undoing, when Apple, and only Apple, can create and develop apps and other software and related products for it.

Well it seems Jobs is thawing out a bit. A crack has appeared in the ice.

At the WorldWide Developers Conference 2007 scheduled for June 11-15 at Moscone West in San Francisco, one of the presentations is getting a lot of attention: Session 614 on the Content and Media track — Developing Websites for iPhone. The presentation notes state:

iPhone completely redefines browser-based web access on a mobile phone. Learn iPhone best practices for ensuring optimal web development of your existing website, or hosted web application. Join the iPhone Safari and WebKit browser development teams as they share the latest techniques on mobile browser-based user experience design and development.

Wowza. All is not lost yet. There is hope.
