Assuming this is real, which it may not be, you might just be looking at the greatest thing to happen to Windows Mobile since – umm – ever. Sometime back in 2007, news of an upcoming software solution surfaced that would allow Windows Mobile users to emulate the BlackBerry OS and grant them access to BlackBerry apps. In other words, it would sort of allow the BlackBerry OS to run as a Windows Mobile application. Pretty much everyone forgot about the rumors quite some time ago since nothing ever materialized, but now a handful of images have surfaced that reportedly show the BlackBerry Application Suite running on an HTC Touch Pro. You read that correctly – BlackBerry OS, on an HTC Touch Pro. While the images on the screen look shiny and new, lack of an HTML browser and some other areas tells us we’re looking at an old feature set. Sure it’s not ideal, but it would still be pretty amazing – plus it’s only a beta if anything. If all this pans out, perhaps we’ll see an updated feature set come along with the release version by… Ohh, we don’t know… 2013?

Thanks, Mark!
