Nobody knows yet. It could as well be some Dashboard/Dashcode Widget
based SDK.

But there is one hint by those guys who are hacking the iPhone. It
appears that there is NO AppKit.framework (but Foundation, WebKit
etc.). It has a new, separate UIKit.framework which appears to be a
simplified (???) AppKit.

And, there is some discussion about signatures, i.e. software

So unless you want to write an open source UIKit, you won't be able to
port any applications. BTW: which GNUstep applications do you think of
are reasonable to operate on the iPhone?

I think we should continue the mySTEP/QuantumSTEP approach to have a
full AppKit on a handheld device. I have already something to show on
the OpenMoko and the Sharp Zaurus and plan to have a fully working
phone to demonstrate at FOSDEM.

There is already a full mySTEP SDK as a plugin to Xcode/IB - so the
Zaurus-OpenMoko/QuantumSTEP combination is already here, is open and
has an SDK (no need to wait until February :)
