That's nice "to have" a cell phone without "owning"

The title reflects the mood of a user (Shadow) Site iSpazio about a story on a stance taken by Apple against the distribution of applications on the iPhone which is that it will not allow the release of applications that will resume the functions already present nell'iPhone without making changes, and then the sole purpose of replacement.

While it is true that this attitude is known for some time the news is still uproar because it involves one of the most important browsers on the market. I'm talking about Opera, of course in its Mobile.

Apparently Apple has refused entry of Opera Mini from the Apple Store reasons for its decision precisely on the grounds that there is already a browser on the iPhone (Safari) and therefore do not need another one.

The source is an article in The New York Times in which Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO of Opera, said:

... That Opera's engineers have developed a version of Opera Mini that can run on an Apple iPhone, but Apple will not let the company release it Because it competes with Apple's own Safari browser.

Now, as also pointed out another user (DrLuca) in the same comments of the Article on iSpazio, I would like to emphasize that the problem is not whether, as the browser is better than Safari, Opera or Safari or PingoPalla ago everything already and maybe even better than Opera, something on which one could argue galore.

The problem is freedom of choice to choose one's mind with the application that is most pleasing or that better reflects the functionality required by each individual user. Incidentally, I do not want anyone could tell me, on an apparatus that has, that an application for a given function already exists. I want to choose another one if I feel that the other, to my subjective idea may be more suitable.

If Apple does not digest this, well they deserve all those, like myself, do not like this kind of taxation and hoping that Opera is then distributed as soon as the channels for the iPhone jailbreaked like Cydia or Installer.
