Google This was inevitable. AdMob founder and CEO Omar Hamoui has responded to Apple blocking AdMob from the iOS ecosystem. Unsurprisingly, Hamoui isn't particularly amused, claiming that not only is it bad for competition, it will also hurt developers and users alike.

Unfortunately that example doesn't really make sense to me. Your analogy would be relevant if Apple said that Apple first party applications are not going to use AdMob. Which is of course just fine.

The iOS SDK is a first-party Apple product.

It's not as if Safari won't display any ads by Google AdSense/DoubleClick.
Safari is increasingly compatible to HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and such. Writing applications using those technologies should be of no problem. Not only would those be compatible with Android as well (Android's default browser is also WebKit-based and should be equally compatible if based on a similar timed WebKit snapshot), you could use all sort of ad providers.
