A Norwegian hacker seemed to have accomplished the impossible – finally making the iPhone a useful device. Using the long winters of his native country he managed to hack Windows Mobile, rather unwillingly, onto the iPhone, and, bootcamp like, is giving iPhone users a choice of booting into a more free OS.

He presented his research at the  MyPhone2008 summit, from where this video is sourced.

When the developer, Erik Kristiansen, was asked to explain what you can do on a Windows Mobile iPhone, his answer, “You can do what you want.” is certainly explanation enough for oppressed iphone owners for doing it in the first place.

Apparently Erik is planning to release the software widely early next year. I am sure thousands of iPhone users who want to tether can hardly wait.


Edit: Its looking very much like a hoax, but it was fun while it lasted 😀
