Apple, Inc. says it has sold 1.4 million iPhones since the device launched this summer. It has also said a significant percentage of these were sold to people who unlocked them and used them on carriers other than AT&T.
After months of trying to block users for installing native third-party applications on the Apple iPhone and iPod touch, Apple has just given in. It has promised to release the software developers will need to create these applications early next year.

Just about everyone says they believe in recycling, but Palm, Inc. is putting its money where its mouth is. This company will cover the cost of recycling any phone or handheld, including ones it didn't make.
Apple has alienated many of its customers by strictly limiting the types of third-party software that can run on the iPhone, which includes blocking the use of native applications. But, according to an unconfirmed report, the company may be putting together a system that will allow users to download approved programs to their smartphone.
