It seems to be becoming clearer that third party apps or widgets will undergo some sort of testing and approval process by Apple itself before being made available on the iPhone (not such a bad idea). At any rate, there will almost certainly be plenty of stable applications available within a very short time after the device is launched IMHO.

I need email/calendar/access to desktop files such as Sprint's Business Connect, the ability to create, edit, and view office documents, GPS, checkbook maintenance, password maintenance, and maybe a view other. If these can be performed, I will probably give it a try.

I have to say that you guys will be quite disappointed if your expecting widgets to take the place of full blown apps. I doubt very highly you will see a splashid widget, a ms word document widget, a gps widget, or anything like that.

Yes there will be something like splash ID either a widget or an apple application
There will be a office document reader , similar to DOCs to go .
Even if say, there won't be 3 rd party apps . Apple has never said, they are not going to make any other apps besides what's there on the phone . Apple will be making their own apps . They have enough knowledge about very popular apps such as docs to go and splash ID . I do not care if they do not have Butler or realtor 3rd party apps .

You reminded me, password protection for the iPhone would be great! To keep someone from getting into your phone's info. And maybe something to stop accidental activation of screen while in purse, pocket, case, etc.. I think Jobs implied something like that but I'm not sure.
