    Hi guys, i am just wondering one the iPhone Software Development Kit is? My guess is that developers can make their own applications to be used on the iPhone/Ipod Touch. So does that mean someone can make an MSN Messenger onto the product? Thanks

    It is a compiler system and tools to create 3rd party software for the iPhone. Yes, it will allow developer to create IM products, however all software developed will have to be approved by Apple to be made available on the iTMS store.

    Yep the SDK is kind of like guide lines and tools on how to make apps for the device. The apps that are released are most likely going to be moderated by Apple via iTunes and if Apple allow a MSN client onto it then w00t. (damnit beat me to it xD)
