I found this a couple of days ago on a site I frequent(pr0x.org), but haven’t had enough time to post about it. It’s currently in beta(a big beta, this is a gigantic project after all). A member named “Your Every Day Hacker” picked up the project from a couple of iPod Touch Fans members, and he decided to continue it. This project is a big nod to iphone developers on Windows, filling the HUGE space left by Apple. Here’s the quote posted on pr0x:

The downside is that your battery life will be quickly depleted.
