The Guardian reports that rumors are circulating that the SDK for the iPhone intended to allow third party developers to build applications for the popular phone may be delayed. Bloggers in the US are being cited as the source for these rumors.

Supposedly the SDK, originally promised for this month, has been delayed so more work can be done on the application. Part of the issue for the SDK is believed to be the need for effective security to keep nefarious users of the SDK from producing applications that could harm the iPhone and users of the phone.

Steve Jobs was quoted last year saying, “This is no easy task [developing the SDK].” Apple is also said to be considering using the iTunes store to sell approved applications directly. That sounds like the Apple way of doing things to me.
