Programming for an iPhone without a Mac

OK, I'm weird (and not just for this following reason) - I have an iPhone 4S but my home laptop runs on Windows 7. Is there any IDE out there that will let me do iPhone programming on a Windows machine. A book I just purchased (fortunately it was used and cheap) says I can only program on a Mac.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The book is correct - for iOS development you need XCode, which only runs on OS X.

Thank you for the response.

Oh well, so much for me becoming the next great iPhone developer. At least until it's time for me to get a new laptop or PC.

Mac laptops have long been considered by many the best machines to run Windows. Make your next laptop a Mac and you can dual boot (or run Windows in a VM) and get the best of both worlds.
