An iPhone SDK coming soon...

It was if millions of voices suddenly cried out in pain, there was no SDK for the iPhone. Well there is now...

The rumours of an official API for the iPhone and the iPod touch in the face of the growing number of unoffical third party applications, Apple have announced an official SDK to be released in February 2008.

Can I be one of many to say... "Hurrah!" and "It's about bloody time!". I mean come on, what took them so long? Of course the wording of the announcement is a bit worrying, it's talking about digital signatures, possibly quite expensive digital signatures. If they're charging real money for those things then I know developers like me aren't going to get a look in, which is a bad. I guess we'll have to see how things go...
