proper payment model can be created.
Well, you need to think through what a proper payment model would be. You may have noticed that the iPhone is absolutely packed with DRM. If you want to be billed every time you view a web page, reliably, that's definitely the way to go. But I won't be going with you.
I think it's necessary to take the iPhone app store sales stuff with a grain of salt. I doubt you can really get rich on a whoopie-cushion app.
