John, do you have Sophie running on this thing yet?

I suspect they'll make 3rd party development go the Web 2.0 route.

You develop with their tools on their hosted server (for a fee) and
then they control what can go to which phones (for a fee that scales
with the number of targeted units).

Just a guess. Such a scenario lets them keep user experience uniform,
predictable, and fewer disabling side effects. The scenario also keeps
the bulk of processing on the servers where one has more room and
flexibility for creativity & interactivity with other processing
services and other data stores. DabbleDB might be more the development
tool we'd use for such a phone.

We'd probably prefer developing for the open source phone.
