I just saw this on the internet
Not a surprise considering it uses an ARM processor...
But no. Why would you want something so crappy on your iPhone?
agree... Windows on iPhone
because windows mobile is more capable than iPhone. It's not as pretty or as simple, but it's much more powerful. same deal for the applications available for each. WM apps offer much more power and utility.
the only thing iphone does better is media.
Sounds like someone got a little bit TOO much into Boot Camp and let his mind wander places it shouldn't have!
Exactly. I wanted a media-centric phone so I went with the iPhone. It can do some business stuff but not like Windows Mobile. My wife went with a Tilt because of work and the iPhone lack of apps that she can use practically day-to-day for that.
Ugh, there is no way I would ever even think about putting Windows Mobile on my iPhone.
If it would play WM files (or OSX), then I'm there.
Woo hoo! So there IS hope for getting Slingplayer / Orb / Sirius / WM streaming media / useful Bluetooth / useful GPS / practical voice dialing and yes copy/paste on the iPhone some day!
Well, for iGo or TomTom...I would do it .
Windows Mobile runs on iPhone/iPod Touch (maybe), for Better or for Worse?
Some guy, somewhere, did something, that let him run WinMo on an iPhone:
Who would be willing to sell their (iPod's) soul and run WinMo on it? Why?
Although it could be done, since both are ARM based these days... although we're talking a lot of effort integrating the Apple phone/screen/etc code with the WM code...
My bet is that it's either just a hoax application, which is all too common these days, or he got one or two screens working and that's all.
I cannot think of a reason why I would ever pursue doing this.
"And you don't have girlfriends in Norway"
- Yes, of course, but they program too so...heh
lol. the guy is funny. she asks him about having gf's and he replies "yes, but they are all programmers too" lol
Geez all of these videos seem so awkward.
I'd do it. I used to have a Dell Axim that ran Windows Mobile 2003. It was great. There are an amazing amount of apps available for them, and they aren't restricted by Apple's stupidity (namely, the App Store and their denying apps). Also the ability to have full use of Office apps would be great, along with many other things.
However looking at the multiple spent husks of HTC's I've abandoned over the ages, the problem with WM is what the iPhone doesn't do, and probably for the better - multitasking. Sometimes even on a fairly fast WM machine it bogs down, and on one of the slower 'smartphones'... yyyyech.
It's great to see Firefox on WM though - Safari is hopeless in the real world. I'm 100% Symbian for the phones I actually use right now (Nokia N and E series - also have new and old iPhone but don't use them much) but I am waiting to give the Experia a go.
i was saying the same thing, the 'host' sucks but she's cute
I've got to admit....If this is true, and really something that gets released, this is a GAME CHANGER. The dual boot is AWESOME. If I want to run mac, I run mac. If i want to run a WM application, bam...it's there. Open Source. What more could you ask for....
I'd rather have Android on my iPhone.
winmo on a touch or a iphone would be good, mobile office/tomtom and an endless list of other application and games, i'd buy it but sadly i don't think it will happen
How about a phone that can receive phone calls instead of missing them while I'm spending the day constantly re-booting?
This is a fun experiment, but the fact is that anyone who would want something like this would be getting an Android phone instead. Right? Wouldn't that give you most of the applications you want without the re-booting?
I posted links to videos of it working!
Why do people always do this? "i don't think it will happen"
That's like me saying 'I don't think they will prove the earth is round'.
Unless 'it' refers to this feature coming to the general public, I don't understand your reply. What were you trying to say?
It's a choreographed video. Win won't run on the hardware.
