Apple has said they won't allow any third party apps they don't
approve.  That most likely means no apps Cingular doesn't approve
also.  You think Cingular is going to allow VOIP apps that reduce the

little MythTV remote app approved by Apple?  etc.

The iPhone hardware may be sweet, but the rest is a nightmare.
