iPhone: Apple apps only?

Sun alum Adrian Cockcroft lists some important but unanswered questions about the new Apple iPhone, Apple's sleek new phone-ipod-camera combo due out in June (for about $600 + Cingular Service plan). Adrian wonders "Is it open for more applications to be loaded? [...] or is it locked down?" and "what is the model for developers to extend the platform?" Rick Ross wonders why nothing was said about Java support and OSNews noticed the very same thing.

Josh optimistically points out the upside of "a real OS, real apis, and a real web browser capable of running real web applications - all delivered by a company that isn't going to fight us every step of the way." Yep, that would rock.

So what's the deal? Does Jupiter Research's Michael Gartenberg, who says the iPhone is "not extensible by third parties, only Apple," have the inside scoop?


From what I can tell, the phones are actually $499 for the 4GB and $599 for 8GB.
Do you know something NPR doesn't? :)

Thanks for pointing that out Richard. I was going from memory on both that $299 price and the June date.
