One of the smartest Apple developments was Boot Camp for Mac OS X which allows a user to run Windows XP or Windows Vista on a Mac. Now, a kind of - let's say - "Mobile Boot Camp" might hit the Apple iPhone as well. Sure enough, this time it's neither developed nor supported by Apple itself but by Norwegian developer Erik Kristiansen who developed his own Boot Camp which either runs his iPhone with the original Apple OS or alternatively with Windows Mobile Professional. Sure, the video bellow could be a fake as well but for now we take him by his word:

Not yet released, Kristiansen said during the myPhone2008 conference that a public release can be expected early next year and that this hack will be released as open source.

UPDATE: Okay, looks like we (I, the bloggers, the Internet, the Windows Mobile users) were "too excited" (?) by running Windows Mobile on iPhone hardware. As it turned out (thanks for the comments and E-Mails), the video and the whole story above is a hoax and part of a viral marketing campaign from Sonic Emotion, a maker of surround-sound systems for PCs, handhelds and other things that need surround sound.
While I'm not sure what they expected to get from such a viral marketing campaign, their idea had 5 minutes of fame; and now back to serious business.

Cheers ~ Arne
