iPhone Drawbacks

There looks to be some significant initial drawbacks to the iPhone  platform.  The most important drawback, that only one application can run at a time, has come to my attention in a personal communication and in the form of this TechCrunch post.   This will make the scanning software, as well as some of the overlay controls much more difficult to configure.  As I look at working with the iPhone as a tool for special education as a long range project, it is good to note this and other major challenges.  Another major drawback is that the SDK is limited to only US developers presently.  Nonetheless, as Dan Herlihy often shows, when there is a will there is a way.
