In September Geoff Teehan from Teehan+Lax has posted his vision for the iPhone Home Screen. Basically the design allows you to create a scrollable home screen of the stuff that matters to you. By default it may track things like missed calls, unread emails and calendar events. Today the designer, announced directly on his blog that this concept will be truly realized, in collaboration with Saurik, the creator of Cydia. Initially the concept will materialize as a lockscreen widget via saurik’s new Cydget framework. According to developers recent tweets a beta will hopefully be available by next week.

According to developers “We got in touch with Jay Freeman a.k.a saurik. He’s the guy behind Cydia, an application for jailbroken iPhones that allows you to browse and download apps outside of actual app store. He’s crazy smart, passionate and geeky — three things we love here at T+L. Jay is going to be instrumental in making this happen.
The app and the underlying technology to make it happen are still in development so what comes out the other side will differ from what we originally proposed. The biggest change will initially be that it will render only on the lock screen. We went down this road for a number of reasons, primarily because of its relative ease of implementation, though there’s nothing easy about it.
