And a Little More Good News on the SDK …

Here’s some more *very* positive sounding omens on the futureLithoscreen1 of software development and apps for the iPhone. 

Apple’s Chief Operating Officer, Timothy Cook, was at a Technology Investment Symposium today, and was  asked some pointed questions about the SDK, 3rd party apps, and iPhone unlockers.  His answers all sound very promising …

Cook referred to the iPhone as "a platform not a product" – cool – as in, a mobile computing platform. 

He also said the SDK would "broaden the platform more, to the point where the only limit will be people’s imagination.”

Here’s maybe the most promising quote of all, in terms of seeing some sanctioned apps immediately upon release of the SDK – when asked when we’ll see the first iPhone third-party apps, he said:

We’re going to go into some more details at the event next week. I don’t want to take away the element of surprise.”

That sounds to me like there’s a very good chance Apple will be announcing some new apps at the press event on March 6th – and that would be excellent. 

It’s been a long wait for the SDK – but seeing some apps available right away, and hearing some more bullish comments on how far Apple and software developers can take the platform, should fill lots of us with enthusiasm again …
