    Developing our own apps with the SDK and then sharing the source code on this forum or in some other outlet so that we can use applications prior to iPhone 2.0?

    If you have the SDK and someone else writes some code and shares it with you along with whatever image files and whatnot they've used, you could conceivably copy/paste the code into your SDK to run the program on your iPhone, right?

    That would be possible, but you have to purchase the $100 SDK to get code to run on the iPhone. Free SDK only runs on the emulator.

    Oh really? Didn't know that.
    Maybe if the download link Apple sent me actually worked...

    There is no $100 SDK. The SDK is free. Apple is giving a limited number of developers the right to pay $100 to get access to, among other things, the ability to run applications on the iPhone.

    Is it really limited?
    I understood it as anyone who wanted to distribute apps through iTunes would pay the $100.
    Or are you just saying limited for now?
