    The iPhone's UI does look really nice for a phone, and apparently it can do this as well.

    PowerVR graphics has to be something else. Lotsa power, on low power, in a small package.. Shame they don't use them in netbooks.

    that app is superb, the maps makes the default iPhone Map look like a joke.

    it's only a simple zoom application, i think they made it exclusively on iPhone is because of the unique multi-touch. it won't be the same experience on normal touch screen or using keypads

    I suspect that the reason this is feasible on the iPhone and not Winmo platform lies in the 3d acceleration. Different Winmo phones use different chips for this, and have varying capability. This makes it very hard to account for when coding, and is part of the reason why there is a dearth of 3d games for winmo - even though many current handsets could handle them. In constrast, there is only one (or maybe two) iPhone chipset(s).

    there is only one iPhone/iPod Touch hardware setup. the only rumour is that the 2gen iPod Touch have a little faster ARM processor, which doesn't give any gameplay advantage at all.

    Standard mobile applications are the smartphone programs you use daily to compose e-mail, update your calendar, edit documents and collaborate with your colleagues.

    But, in order to customize your mobile business experience – there are apps that are tailored to YOUR specific business requirements. Workflow management, logistics, shipping management, and other industry-specific software today is fully available.

    Business mobile Apps help you stay organized and manage your business while you are on-the-go.

    What do you think about new technologies?
