Default Windows mobile on BB?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey just wondering if anyone successfully got Windows Mobile to work on their BlackBerry?? I've been trying to research it for a while now and am coming up with nothing.

Thanks!

Because hasn't been done

That idea is crazy

BB is stable add WM and that goes out the window not to mention SECURITY

why would you want WinMo on a blackberry? If you want WinMo buy a Winmo phone. BlackBerry exists as a way to not have to deal with the depths of Tartarus that is WinMo or Palm.

Because the phone is designed to work with its OS. You start messing around by stripping away the OS, security goes out the windowsmobile. BBs have not been hacked, they are the most secure wireless device on the market. and for the record, Vista and Mac OS are becoming increasingly similar, its sickening :( give me 98se or Server 2003 over either any day

For the same reason that I can't install Vista on my microwave oven.

Next experiment: put diesel in your gasoline powered car.
Unless the mechanical workings are the same, you can't interchange the fuel. It's the exact same case with any type of computer.

If RIM ever let you put WinMoblie on a BB I would lose all respect for them and turn my BB into a doorstop.. just my two cents..

It may not be what you're looking for, but you can get BB services on other devices:
