These applications will all run within Safari, but can (with the right development) mimic the look and feel of already extant iPhone applications.The Web applications will have the capability -- like any other Web page in the iPhone's Safari browser -- to access iPhone functions like dialing a number, sending email, retrieving a map, finding contacts in Address Book and more.Disappointed? Relieved? Let us know.
