Video: iPhone hack for Windows Mobile & Palm Smartphones

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.

    shirster: Trust me, I’ve had new designs done up, but I can’t seem to backup the database and restore it back properly. Unless I can do that well, I can’t do any updates or I’d lose everything. I’d appreciate any advise as blog’s MySQL database is really bloated at this point.

  3. I am always impressed by how hackers can take something off the screen and turn it into reality. The guys who did the interface manage to get the key lock right that leads to the IPhone screen.

  4. BL: It’s hard to keep a good idea down. Now that more netizens are getting exposed to code (e.g. widgets etc), we’re going to see the grassroots easily take matters into their own hands. Who knows, perhaps in the near future, every household would be able to fabricate any new gizmo on their own. Perhaps I should give this a verb… “Are you going to China that?” 😛
