First let me say, I do not own an iPhone, I have never used an iPhone, and I am not slamming the iPhone users. However, Chris posted this on MobilitySite and I thought it was pretty funny because of all of the iPhone icons and functionality making it’s way over to Windows Mobile Devices. HTC Home Customizer in fact has iPhone icons for your HTC Home Plugin. Now iPhone has been subject to some Microsoft Windows Mobile love in the form of an Operating System being installed! Check out the story:
Now you all know that I am an avid fan of Windows Mobile, but I also think the iPhone is a great toy. The toy will be more business friendly soon though. I am not really into modding my phones to look like others, but some foreign company has taken people’s obsession with the iPhone and run with it.
There is a program called Touch Flo, which I am pretty sure is HTC’s own innovation, that allows your Windows Mobile device look and somewhat operate like an iPhone. I have reported here about this before too as well as third party programs to accomplish this. This foreign company, which I guess is called solimobi, has taken an iPhone knock off body and put Windows Mobile 6 running Touch Flo on it. To make matters worse, they are selling it, backwards Apple logo and all! It’s really quite funny.
I’d be willing to bet that Apple and HTC aren’t too pleased with this…
