iPhonesque is a small technology demo I made in December 2007 to test how iPhone optimized pages work on Nokia's new S60 devices. First this was only interesting from iPhone's perspective; to test different mobile sites. Soon I realized that there is more than that: there are many operators who have services that require certain terminal model and type. No matter that those services work also with other devices - operator will deny access from those users. As far as I know, operators still accept payments from these customers but at the same time deny service.

This reply to my blog posts says it all:

<operator's> politic is certainly illegal, but I don't have the courage and money to fight with them :(.
I already phone to their technicians, but they answer that they don't have support for the models they don't sell, but I payed my subsribtion for theses options, my model is capable (like the N73, it's similar system, same browser, same player), they just don't want to do it, they would prefer that we buy the models sim lock and branded...

Original sites for iPhonesque information are Forum Nokia and Mobilitics, check those for more information, especially about signing. You can also find the application source code from these sites.

There's not much I can do, but based on the requests that I've got I decided to compile different versions of the application for you to use. Remember though, that you must sign the application yourself; I will not do it for you. Check the original Forum Nokia and Mobilitics pages for more information about signing.
