web 2.0 for development

iPhone seems to be an Internet device for development


Mr Jobs just launched Apple‘s new innovation called iPhone.


It seems to be something really ahead. It seems to be a good device to bring internet around the countries, in the fields, with the extensionists everyday, everywhere. A huge screen to browse and send emails, a nice camera to shoot the activities, a phone to dialogue with others…


INTEGRATION is a good keyword for this device. Nancy White‘s posting about mobile persuasion can be helpful to think about new directions we can get in development. Here you can also read some opinions about it from the business world: TechCrunch and O’Reilly.

Me, I’m just looking forward to see it in the shop under my place!!!!

  1. Now, if it could just be affordable. $400 USD seems to be a lot to pay for the device. The other challenge is Apple’s insistence of locking things into iTunes. Argh. Everyone wants to capture us in tiny little boxes!

  2. Nancy, you are so right! They have this temptation to encapsulate us into their boxes, like iTunes, and keep us there.
    In this case, I found it disturbing but I was so fascinated by the possibilities offered by the device that I thought possible to accept this restriction.
    As for the price, I see it high but not impossible to be paid. I saw many other phone and pda to cost the same or more, offering less options and potentialities.
