Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the venture capital company that works with Apple on the iFund project, has started a blog to share perspectives around the iPhone and "emerging open mobile ecosystem".

The company reveals that in the 6 months since launching, it has received over 2700 plans from people or companies hoping for funding for their iPhone applications from the fund's $100 million pot.

The iFund has now officially funded five companies totaling more than $30 million of investment, the first two - Pelago and iControl - that we've brought you news of previously.

The next is ng:moco, iPhone games launching its first titles this month and GOGII, a new social interaction and marketing platform, launching in Q4.

The final project to receive funding is described as "an unannounced venture launching in Q1", with more exciting developments promised for the future: "We know some of the apps in the pipeline will take things to a whole new level".
