Windows Mobile Runs on the iPhone, Heads Asplode

Norwegian hacker Erik Kristiansen (why the focus on Norwegian-ness?) has managed to load Windows Mobile on an iPhone -- you simply boot up the phone and then pick your OS. There's not much more to show here -- although it does appear to boot up pretty darn quickly. Kriastiansen was interviewed at the myPhone2008 event in Las Vegas.

Supposedly the software will be released early next year. Count us among the people interested in installing this -- it would be pretty interesting to see how Windows Mobile worked on the iPhone's hardware. So interesting, in fact, that we'd be willing to take a little ribbing over it about spending all winter playing around with it. (watch the end of the video to see what we mean).

**Update**: Engadget Mobile calls fake, we can't say we disagree with them. Look real to you?

  • Fake? I dunno. Dude looks Norwegian. :-P
  • i dunno why it couldnt be real. Seems pretty easy to dump a full ROM onto it. Its not like they said its full functioning with phone/data, just that the OS works. I cant see why it wouldnt be possible though.
  • That woman wanted his baby.
  • She was definitely making plans for their future together. I think she was looking to hookup with a young prodigy genius programmer.
  • Aslo if it was possible to use the hardware I would do it. It seems like there is always trouble getting the OS to communicate to the various radios.
