iPhone's OS X Less than 500MB, Flash vs Hard Drive, iWork Integration?
Macworld.co.uk provides some quotes from Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of worldwide iPod marketing.
Joswiak provides some additional details about the version of OS X that runs on the Apple iPhone. He confirms that the operating system sits in the flash memory of the iPhone and takes up "considerably less" than half a gigabyte of storage.
OS updates will be provided regularly, much like iPod updates are provided.
Meanwhile, Joswiak also states that Flash memory was chosen for the iPhone over a hard drive due to the advantages of size and durability.
In another report Joswiak reports that Apple will be providing accessory makers more details about designing for the iPhone later this month:
"We will be giving our developers technical information by the end of next month that will outline those extra requirements. Well work with our developers to make sure that the products are properly shielded."
He also confirms that the only other applications to be expected for the iPhone will be coming from Apple for the time being. Macworld.co.uk speculates that the next iWork update may integrate with the iPhone. Indeed, the buzz on the Macworld floor indicates that many believe that the iWork and iLife updates have been delayed due to tight integration with Leopard. iPhone integration could also certainly be possible, but no concrete evidence yet to support this.
