Autocad on the IPhone

In a very interesting development a version of the very well known CAD system will become available for the IPhone and IPad, available by this fall.... I used AutoCad early in the enterprise for manufacturing design applications. This won't be a complete application, I doubt you would want to extensive work on a smartphone. It could have some interesting location based applications. I will be curious to see that it will include, and how useful that subset of capabilities will be on smaller devices:

' ... Autodesk is bringing its AutoCAD architecture, design, and engineering software back to the Mac OS after an 18-year absence, the company announced this evening. But the company plans to do more than offer a Mac OS X version of AutoCAD: It says it will release a free version of the software, dubbed AutoCAD WS, for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch that lets users review, edit, and share AutoCAD files on those popular mobile devices..
