In case it wasn't obvious, iPhone apps run on S60

Chris Ziegler

Since the iPhone's apps aren't really apps but rather web-based widgets employing a variety of Web 2.0 standards, it only stands to reason that there are probably some other devices out there that can take advantage. In particular, Nokia's S60-based devices already rock a Safari-based browser (and an absolutely terrific one, may we add) -- and sure enough, the few iPhone "apps" kicking around out there seem to work. Of course, the upcoming glut of widgets will likely be designed to take full advantage of the iPhone's somewhat unique input methodology and screen size, so it's not a perfect fit -- but it seems pretty likely N95 owners will be able to find a few new goodies with Apple to thank.
