Apple WWDC'07

Posted on June 14, 2007

WWDC'07Back in San Francisco, this week is Apple‘s WWDC 2007 event (I’d call it a show, but it is meant to be a developer conference). The buzz of course is all around the iPhone, expected to be available in two weeks time, and whether or not application developers will be able to write cool new apps for it.

The answer to that question appears to be yes, and no. It does sound as though web applications running in the phone’s Safari browser will be able to do some very cool things, but it doesn’t look as though we’ll be able to add Devicescape support using that mechanism (not least because you can’t access the web to download the application before logging in at a commercial hotspot).

I’ll keep watching the announcements to see if there is any way to get Devicescape supported on this phone so you can enjoy easier access to those Wi-Fi hotspots while you’re out and about, and let you know if I discover anything. Meanwhile, if you have any pointers to information that might help, I’d appreciate it :-)
