I know these questions and things have been floating around but i would like a solid answer. I've called apple and i can't get a reason. My view point is this. They sell the iPhone which comes with hardware and software Correct? They also sell the iMac (and many other macs) which also come with hardware and software. They completely allow third party apps to be installed they even give you the tools to make them for free. So my question is why not the iPhone?
