Some people can only dream until June 2007, while others actually do something about it.
I’m talking about the functional iPhone skin hack for Windows Mobile and Palm Smartphones.
As Gizmodo’s Jason Chen puts it:
“Most of the icons are just shortcuts to the equivalent apps on Windows Mobile, but the most impressive thing must be the screensaver and the scrolling. The screensaver lets you whisk your finger to the right to unlock the phone, and the scrolling mimics the finger scrolling on the iPhone. A nice stopover between now and June for those who really can’t wait.”
Naturally, Apple has demanded the removal of the files from the messageboards (Brighthand and xda developers) where they were first posted. For me, I constantly impressed by what users can achieve on their own nowadays. If I have a kid of my own, I’m definitely going to teach him English, Chinese and C++ in that order.
