iPhone Devs Being Courted

Sony and Microsoft are both courting iPhone Devs for the PSPgo and Zune HD respectively, but neither have a device that is "always connected" (e.g. 3G) - much less a phone. I can't believe the iPhone has been on the market for 2 years now and it's still the only revolutionary handheld that does everything well (Zune is media centric and PSPgo is gaming centric).


Sony to court iPhone devs, match App Store pricing?: "

We've known for a while now that 'snackable' content (inexpensive apps for instant gratification) was in the cards for the PSP, a fact that supports rumours reported by Pocket Gamer that handheld games for the PlayStation Network will be priced in the €1-5 range -- on par with Apple's App Store. In addition, it seems that the company has been "actively sourcing" iPhone developers to bring their existing titles to PSN. Who knows? Maybe the quick'n'easy approach to games (and someday apps?) will take some of the sting out of the PSPgo's 'premium' price point. Either way, if all this is true it's turning out to be a red letter day for iPhone devs.

All I have to say is that technology for hand phones in Asia is incredible. They use hp (i mean cell phones) like we use laptops...They do everything here via hand phones. It is incredible. I still don't understand living in a third whole country where everyone has really fancy hand phones...that I can't operate, they are too fancy...I have a simple hand phone here...but it still has a rad flash light and the old snake game. Yay nokia old school!
