In case you didn't know, Apple have released a device called the iPhone, which is the greatest phone in the history of the World ever. Apparently. If you want to try out the new technology but are put off by the price of the iPhone, then get FreeStylWM onto your Pocket PC pronto.

The free software adorns your Today screen with a surface designed to look and behave like the Apple mobile. The program is based on the mobile Flash platform, so you'll need this installed, and you'll also need Internet connectivity to hook up to FreeStyl http server.

Pursuing with the lengthily install and setup procedures is well worth it, because the riches that this theme offers are quite incredible. I guess the main boon is the slick Today screen interface, where you're presented with large, iPhone-style icons representing your tasks and applications. The beauty of these is that they enable you to access things without the need for a stylus as they are lare enough to be tapped with a finger.

The amount of configuration options within FreeStylWM is very impressive, allowing you to assign icons to specific programs, choose from a number of Mac-ish wallpapers, select an analog or digital clock display or access new 'applets' for more iPhone functionality on your device, such as Contacts or Weather.

If you want to know what it feels like to use an iPhone, FreeStylWM represents one of the most realistic simulations I've encountered.

FreeStylWM allows you to transform the environment of your Today screen to make it look and behave like an iPhone. The FreeStyl launcher allows you to configure five pages of 12 icons (60 icons in all) as well as four primary icons visible at the bottom of all the pages.

To move between the different pages you just slide your finger left or right across the screen to page through the icons. The launcher allows you to either choose a specific background or you can optionally rotate through all the wallpapers in a specified folder at a specified interval.

The package also includes the FreeStyl locker, which features the same wallpaper engine available in the FreeStyl Launcher and optionally allows you to view a analog or digital clock. It displays all the same notificaiton icons that the Launcher does as well.

At the bottom of the screen is a "slide to start" orb that allows you to unlock the locker by sliding your finger from left to right on the screen.
