iPhone interface on Sony Vaio UX Micro PC


Since the iPhone interface was first shown off at Macworld 2007, many have created look-alike skins to use on their Palm and Windows Mobile smartphones, Sidekicks, and other cell phones.

While initially clever and interesting to look at, none of the existing skins has anything over what a Micro PC Talk forum member named Alexium has created. Dubbed the uPhone, it’s a functional pre-YouTube program launcher that brings the iPhone UI to Sony’s UX series of Micro PCs. Alexium calls it a "hack job" at the moment, "using scripts in the background to handle all the calls," and will likely make it available to the public "after it’s been polished a little."

So far, though, he’s got just about everything working, including the unlocking slider, iTunes Cover Flow, and making phone calls via Skype!

See it all in action below.
