“Tzywen” has posted a video on YouTube of a “custom ‘iPhone-like’ interface running on a Eten M600 PocketPC:

When I posted the video of my iPhone interface clone I wasn’t exactly expecting this much interest. Since then I’ve gotten a lot of requests to release it, a few job offers (3 claiming they are from Microsoft), people wanting to beta test it and people wanting to know how to use PPL… No, I haven’t gotten any emails from Apple yet if you’re wondering (wink)
Haven’t had much time to blog since my last post so I’m here to clear things up a bit. A lot of people have asked me to send them the iPhone software that was featured in the video. The short answer is no. I cannot do that because I’ll get sued. By not releasing the software to the wild, Apple cannot do much to me. All they can do is ask me to remove the video and my post. That’s going to save me a lot of trouble so I hope you all understand. Trust me, I would have released this if I wasn’t that concerned about Apple’s legal team. Who wouldn’t want to see their software running on other people’s devices? (wink)
I wrote this interface as a challenge to see if I can actually replicate the iPhone interface. I cannot devote all my time to developing this for a public release because I have a day job. Again, if there are no legal issues involved I would gladly release the source to the comminity [sic] and I’m sure that in no time, it will be able to COMPLETELY imitate the iPhone. IF there is time I will continue developing this and hopefully, someday somehow there will be a release.
