The appstore is easily the most interesting part of the iPhone, much more than 3G.
I agree whole-heartedly. I believe the AppStore is a great thing from a commercial point of view, both for Apple (obviously), but also for the developers who all have (almost) the same chance to have their app noticed and make a ton of money from it. I understand concerns with regards to the openness of the whole thing – but hey, this is a free market and it's not as if anybody forces you to buy into this particular walled garden.
