I wonder if they'all also open up the touchscreen iPod? It's actually just a handheld computer which runs OSX.

Steve says the SDK will work the same with the touch as the iPhone.

Yep, I just read that a little while ago myself. And Fortune just posted the following article, which I agree with. The iPod touch is going to get very interesting now, it may be a good alternative to a laptop for a lot of tasks. Very cool!

Too bad an open iPhone wasn’t the truly big news. Tucked in at the end of Jobs’s letter is the real bombshell: Apple will let developers write software for the iPod touch.

Who cares about the iPod touch?

A lot of people, it turns out. The $299 gadget has quickly become the second most popular iPod in Apple’s lineup, behind the iPod nano. Because of the way Apple’s sales have been trending, the iPod touch is probably more popular on a unit basis than even the iPhone
