This morning, Microsoft has officially launched its first iPhone application called Seadragon. Seadragon will allow iPhone users to browse high-resolution photos as well as allow users to explore Photosynth collections.

According to Macworld, “Photosynth is a Microsoft technology that lets users stitch digital photos together into a three-dimensional panorama. Microsoft incorporated the ability to view PhotoZoom and Deep Zoom Composer content, as well.”

A source within Microsoft told a blog that the iPhone is the only mobile platform that allows accelerated graphics (the Blackberry or Nokia phones do not) which is why they decided to create Seadragon for the iPhone only.
