Just think about it...as a cell phone, how much more stable is your Razr than your Treo?

This whole thing just confirms what many people have always said - when it comes to security and stability, Apple is no better than anyone else, they are just not being targeted.

All i said was that AT&T might be worried about VOIP (again not that they deserve to) and about VIRUSES (again not that thats the big point of the IPHONE).
You think maybe some clueless execs at AT&T may have put pressure on Apple because they have heard about VOIP and don't want Apple to put it on the phone?
Or that Jobs is worried his reputation may get tarnished by the first virus passed by bad 3rd party software that makes people think its a vunerability in OS X (which he still insists is the OS of the IPHONE).

However, I only loaded well-reviewed apps on my Treo. People here like to do beta testing and that's why apps messed up the Treo.
Allowing 3rd party apps is a chance you have to take if you want to infiltrate the smartphone market(assuming this is one thing Apple wants to do. I still think it's more a multimedia phone). OR create powerful enough apps so no one wants to look anywhere else. But even then, some developer will come up with something you didn't think of.

Now how can Apple possibly develop an SDK if they are still developing there own initial applications (AND changing primary elements of the OS) for the phone? You will notice a great deal of updating occurring for the first few months after the iPhone's release. Why would they develop (try to develop) an SDK if software is changing so much at this stage?
I said it 2 weeks ago and I'll say it again: "Apple is not ready with an SDK yet".

According to Archie it has been added already, viana web app. Im sure you dont mind giving the website your username, password and the content of your IM messaging. I also hope you dont mind the inevitable cross-site scripting hacks that will take place.
The brave new world is going to be so much fun.

Having the OS done and having the SDK done are 2 different things.
Actually, the sdk comes before the OS is released (well before).
Apple has one, but has decided against the BREW route and basically is saying Safari is the the only presentation layer for app dev (of course, inless you are Apple internal, in which case you get the rich experience client apps all to yourself.

Apple of course thinks an OS without 3rd party software is juuust fine....

What you have said previously shows you have no idea about the hardware/software development process and I won't waste my time in a back and forth with you. Don't make stuff up about things that you don't understand. It makes you look bad.

ACCESS Releases ACCESS Linux Platform PDK and SDK to Licensees and Developers (2/12/07)
...and as everyone knows, ALP is far from being ready for release yet.
And furthermore, SDK's typically come out months before any device comes out with it, for obvious reasons: 3rd party development.
WM6's SDK was released in March, well ahead of official WM6 device roll-outs.
WM5's SDK was released in 5/2005. The 6700 was released here in the States in October 2005.

All I know from my years in the industry is that everyone publishes their SDK to their platforms ASAP to allow developers to code for it so there are apps available for the platform at release. A year early in a lot of cases. This is my first hand experience and I have worked with OS development. Now Apple may not have made this external but internally their own developers need this. I find it extremely unlikely that this is not the case. But guess what, a former colleague of mine is a QA manager on the iPhone group, so I can probably find out soon. Probably not until after release though.

Carbon was an Apple cross-platform language to support legacy apps so developers who had OS 9 apps could easily make them cross-platform during the transition to OS X. It was not what OS 9 was based on. It only allowed you to have the same binary that could be used on OS 9 and OS X.
Archie, again you prove you don't know what you are talking about.
