The Cathedral and the Bazaar - musings on iPhone and Android

I discuss if the iphone is an unstoppable force and propose that entrepreneurs and developers consider the coming wave of handsets that are more open and "more betterer" for the public. Otherwise we face a lock-in of our own "early-adopter" creation.
Sorry I don't talk about the Palm, I've had many iterations since the Palm1000 but I don't think they can make it without Appstore, great developer community and/or awesome content. Its just a device and that is not enough now.
