iPhone activation relies on Windows Mobile
Posted by onlydarksets on July 20, 2008
Imagine my surprise yesterday, when the Apple employee who was hooking up my iPhone pulled out a handheld device running Windows Mobile! There was a full-screen application (looked like something in Java), but I saw the distinctive WM keyboard select icon (in the system tray area) and the craptacular WM QWERTY keyboard (funny nonsequitor – I actually had to think for a second how to spell QWERTY):
I am pretty sure the device was the Symbol MC70 (or a predecessor to it):
I’m surprised I couldn’t find anything on this on the interwebs. I’d have guessed this would be a hot-topic.
Still not “hot”, but it’s out there. Thanks, Pony99CA.
