It seems that 3rd party applications are not wanted on the iPhone:

"In an interview with the New York Times, Steve Jobs confirms reports  
that the recently-announced iPhone will not allow third party  
applications to be installed. According to Jobs, 'These are devices  
that need to work, and you can't do that if you load any software on  
them.' In a similar vein, Jobs said in a MSNBC article that,  
'Cingular doesn't want to see their West Coast network go down  
because some application messed up."
