It may not be marketed this way, but there's no denying that the iPod touch (and iPhone) are the closest things we've had to an iPDA since the newton. I think Apple needs to start making some 1st party apps for this thing (maybe make them available for download off of iTunes). These devices have the power to run: - The same apps (mail on iPod touch please?) - Mobile office applications (iWork Mobile anyone?) - Mobile "Widgets" perhaps - PDA-esque accessories (external keyboard support and such. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the iWork mobile idea) They also have the potential to be used for more entertaining purposes. For example, wouldn't it be nice to hook up your iPod touch to your TV or stereo system and use it to stream content from iTunes like the Apple TV? The hardware's there, it just needs software. And my final point is the thing everyone wants: An open, easily accessible development environment, IE- User created content. I know Apple likes to have control over it's software, but they can't ignore the cries forever. It's something everyone wants, why not give it to us? These devices have a lot of potential, particularly in the realm of software. I think we need to see more development happening in these areas. What are your thoughts?
