I just read waffle’s blog entry about iPhone SDK release. Looks like Objective C is the only supported language by default (I am just downloading SDK).The comments speculated that embedding Python is not possible due to size constraints. Bollocks I say =) Python for Series 60 phones is 500 kb download without trimming. It’s less than the size of HTML page you are viewing now – RAM footprint is even smaller) If Series 60 phones, which have much more modest hardware specifications, can run Python it shouldn’t be a problem for iPhones either.
Why Apple didn’t add additional language support by default? Well they seem to have their hands full to get SDK out at all (delays) so we shouldn’t expect to have perfect set in 1.0 release.
Now, who wants start a porting project with me? 😉
