    Perhaps. According to the iPhone OS Accessories page:
    Either way, I believe you still need to join the Made for iPod and Works with iPhone Licensing Program in order to get the details. If you need more information, I suggest you contact Apple.

    as itunes is able to talk to iphone, so why cant iphone/iPod touch talk to pc/mac ? at least i presume, the default cable that comes with iPhone is "Works with iPhone" licensed, is not it ?

    It's more that we don't know. I don't think (although I could be wrong) that any of the regular posters in this forum are members of the Made for iPhone program. It has always seemed a rather secretive thing to me with not much detail about what you can and can't do being available...

    i talked to 1-800-275-2273 from
    http://www.apple.com/support/contact/phone_contacts.html

    and it seems they dont know about "made for iPhone" membership they dont support developement issues.

    no reply for my mail yet

    what should be the number i should talk to, at least i need to know the price and what i get for that price so that I can inform to purchase dept to take a decission on this .

    You may have to join the program and sign an NDA before anyone will tell you even that little.
