back to article Windows Mobile on iPhone a cruel joke?

Proof that PR companies are starting to understand which techie buttons to push comes in the form of a video of Windows Mobile apparently running on an Apple iPhone, despite the insanity of such a proposition. The video is supposedly shot at the "myPhone 2008" show in Las Vegas, and while the city plays host to an awful lot of …

    There's no such thing as impotent publicity.

    "...we shall decline to explain what Sonic Emotion do, or sell..."

    So, there's no Windows Mobile on the iPhone? Whew thats a relief!!!

    So the vid wins the award for the most abstract piece of viral advertising EVER, that is unless Sonic Emotion are about to release such an iPhone bootcamp . . .

    Windows mobile on iPhone Why not?

    sounds like a massive improvement to me, it would be more reliable, stable and infinitely more fun and easy to use.

    In a moment of spooky prescience, a colleague asked me this morning if the operating system on his iPhone was Windows Mobile, the same as my HTC Tytn II!

    Others talk about a soundfield, we create it!

    Wheter you look for a professional sound system or a license for your consumer products, sonic emotion offers the right technology."

    Save yourself time and check out XNXX's webiste instead. It's much better.
