I don't think so, if I understand what SJ & co said at the WWDC
keynote & SDK announcement. The interface (that they call CocoaTouch)
is rather different from what you have with a mouse and screen (this
is also partially true for ajax). For instance, there is no
"mouseover" at this stage. By contrast, you have these touch
interface which is really different, and you have these extra
sensors. This interface is still, IMHO, rather underexploited.
On the other hand, I agree that porting most of rev to such a device
seems reasonably feasible. But, to continue another thread (Cocoa), a
true porting would involve a loss of "cross platform compatibility",
which I translate by the appearance of some diversity. Of course, it
would be always possible to emulate most of the classical interface,
but I think that developing on such a device (small screen, no
overlapping windows, other sensors) motivates the appearance of new
interface solutions, at the very least.
