The OSX on the iphone is kind of in name only as far as we can tell.
The processor is an ARM, and the development tools for the iphone are
not available. So, no there is no inkwell. Even if inkwell was
there, it hardly makes OSX a newton. No gesture recognition and the
wrong interface make this kind of lame in my experience (on OSX).
