ReadWriteWeb reports that Digg founder Kevin Rose accidentally confirmed during a recent interview that an iPhone application for the popular social news site is under development. The revelation came in response to a question from one of the interviewers claiming to have seen a peek at the application.
How did the interviewers end up catching a glimpse of the application? Eriksen wrote us today in an email, "We were sitting next to each other, and he had his iPhone in hand. I was turning to him to ask him a question when I saw him playing around with the app."
Rose has gained some publicity in the Apple community for his predictions on forthcoming product revisions. While Rose's information has not proven to be 100% reliable, he has on occasion provided remarkably accurate information in advance of Apple product announcements.
