Apple iPhone web-apps run on Nokia phones too!

Nokia N95 can run iPhone web appsIn an interesting twist of mobile phone irony, it seems that Nokia phones are able to run the iPhone-only web-apps that are designed to work only on the iPhone’s Safari browser. You see, the Nokia Series 60 browser uses the same base code as the Mobile Safari browser.

So, where’s the twist of irony? Well, it seems that iPhone web-apps will not only run on the iPhone, but on the arch-rival Nokia N95. Not to mention that the interoperability of these web-apps should spur even more iPhone web-apps based on previously developed Series 60 apps.  We think the fact that two blood-enemies like the iPhone and N95 can share such similar roots (cough…kinda like religion…cough).

Now, seeing as how our apps can play nice, can’t all iPhone and N95 users just get along?

Oh, and world peace would be nice.
