But there is a huge difference between what GWT does and running Java apps on the iPhone in a full-blown JRE.
When it all comes down to it, GWT produces a web application that sends HTML and script to a browser just like any other web application. The fact that this interface is "compiled" from Java code is moot at that point. [ June 26, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
What I find very interesting is that the iPhone will be running full OS X and a full browser (albeit without applet or Flash support), rather than some dimpy-doodle watered down WAP browser.
Even without applets and Flash, it opens up a whole new opportunity for mobile web apps that aren't possible on less capable devices.
Unfortunately, I don't have the scratch to plop down just to get one to play around with. And I'm not on-the-go enough to warrant justifying it as a legitamate business tool. [ June 26, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]
