    The iPhone 4 has a LED light. And a light sensor (camera). What's stopping devs from developing optical mouse apps?

    Is there such an app then?

    Why not? There's already apps like Air Mouse, etc. but none with the motion tracking of an optical mouse.

    I just don't see why anybody would want to rub his expensive iPhone against a table whilst a 10$ mouse can do the same job 100 times better.

    Agreed. It's an interesting concept but seems pretty impractical.

    Wireless mice are $20. Multitouch Magic Mouse is $80. If you have a case, paying $1 for a good optical mouse app is worth 100 times more than buying a Magic Mouse.
