Mathematica for iPhone

Every now and then, I like to start a rumour that’s entirely fabricated, in the hopes that it will turn out to be legitimate after all. Thus:

I hear on the grapevine that Wolfram are looking at building out an iPhone version of Mathematica. The idea of something the size of a pocket calculator being able to do hard-core algebra is exciting enough, but there’s a kick in the tail here — apparently, the front-end on the iPhone can be made to talk to a back-end running on a Mac Pro or indeed any Mathematica grid. Wooohaa!

One significant problem is that the App Store isn’t currently configured for products costing in excess of £2,000.

Dude yes.

I definitely need this to exist.
