Safari coming to a cell phone near you

Nokia gets AppleIf anything leads one to conclude that Apple is making a move into the cellular telephony market, it’s the new deal that has Nokia dumping the newly open-sourced innards of Safari into its phones. A significant development for many reasons, not the least of which is the choice of Apple’s browser code instead of Mozilla’s…. or even Opera’s (a fellow Scandanavian company) for that matter.

Whether this will lead to the fabled iPod iPhone, one cannot be sure, but with the iPod Photo already out there, it’s only a matter of time before they toss a phone into the mix and make take the iPod to the obvious next level.
