Apple John Gruber has found out that cross-compilers are no longer allowed in iPhone OS 4.0. "My reading of this new language is that cross-compilers, such as the Flash-to-iPhone compiler in Adobe's upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release, are prohibited. This also bans apps compiled using MonoTouch - a tool that compiles C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. It's unclear what this means for tools like Titanium and PhoneGap, which let developers write JavaScript code that runs in WebKit inside a native iPhone app wrapper. They might be OK."

Or... they will forgo iPhone development altogether as their working codebase no longer fits the platform

Android has made a significant dent in the iPhone market people that once would have had an iPhone now have a selection of various Andriod Phones to pick from that fit their taste (and not steve jobs') for instance it just so happens that a lot of people *like* having a physical keyboard
