“When reverse engineering, it’s sometimes hard to figure out exactly what you’re looking at, and what it all means,” Erica Sadun reports for TUAW. “For example, the iPhone’s supported platforms include the following.”
Platforms = (M68, N82, simulator);
Platforms = (N45);
Sadun reports, “We know what the M68 platform is. It’s the iPhone. And we know what N45 is, the iPod touch. So what’s the N82? Could it be another member of the iPhone family? Perhaps. It’s hard to make that call without any more data — so rather than worry about N82, let’s consider the next entry: ‘simulator.'”
Sadun asks, “Does this indicate that the upcoming SDK may offer a Mac-based developer simulator, an ‘iPhone in a box?'”
