The iPhone 3G is still a "walled garden" Although the iPhone AppStore has generated some considerable buzz for its diverse selection of third-party iPhone applications, some open-source advocates are still dissatisfied that they cannot download any application they want onto their iPhone 3G. Because Apple ultimately controls which applications will be sold to users over the AppStore, reviewers such as Engadget have said the device is a new, though admittedly better, version of the "walled garden" devices that carriers have been selling for years. Blogger Craig Mathias, however, thinks that this walled garden approach has some advantages as well as setbacks, as many enterprise users want a device that will be functional and that will offer predictable service more than they want a device with a completely open approach to mobile applications.
