    I think it'll just be applications, such as games, to do list etc. etc.

    Think software. A customizable home screen will most likely come with a firmware update.

    I'm looking forward to a password manager, good todo program, nice chess game, and anything else that makes me go "wow, didn't think of that. That's damn sweet" :)

    Games. iBlackjack springs to mind, but I'd like to see Poke-A-Mole, and a Warioware style minigame suite.

    you don't know what SDK is? Its a software developers kit that will allow native 3rd party applications to be installed on your iphone or ipod touch, apps such as games and you will probably have the ability to do much more once SDK is officialy released on March 6th.

    I think the two that everyone would want are:

    Slingplayer
    Skype

    I'm sure Apple won't like the idea of skype as it could take sales away from the iPhone, but I would certainly expect to see slingplayer at some point.

    OK, so it's a memory pig, but Wiki2Touch really is absolutely jaw-dropping. I'd LOVE to see it "officially" available.

    No, it means that Apple will exclusive control what is available for you to install. And I'm not trying to be cynical here, just realistic. In requiring digital signatures for all applications, Apple will have much better control over security, stability, and distribution of applications. This should significantly reduce the need to support the apps as opposed to just any application beng able to be installed. Currently, there is no "control" in the Jailbreak world.

    Absolutely. What a better place for Apple to provide the applications? iTunes is proven, simple to use, and the content is affordable. Time will tell as to just how affordable the new applications will be.

    I'm very interesting to see if down the road, the two can coexist. I anticipate that there will be lots of applications available through Apple that won't be available through the Jailbreak world, and vice versa. Having the capability to maintain both concurrently could be useful.
