While Windows Mobile 6.5 was just introduced as Windows phone into the market, it's known that Microsoft is already working on its follower. And now, WMExperts and have received screenshot mock-ups of a Windows Mobile version which is said to represent Windows Mobile 7. As a matter of fact, the general look and feel, with battery and signal indicator at the bottom, still look like what we have seen from earlier Windows Mobile 7 leaks already, and therefore the comparison between today's Windows Mobile 6.5 applications and the expected Windows Mobile 7 applications is even more interesting.

According to WMExperts and's anonymous tipster, Windows Mobile 7 will feature reworked applications as well as dialog boxes and menus and he just send a couple of examples to both websites:

It's noticeable that the so called Windows Mobile 7 screenshots lack the Windows Mobile Professional typical Windows menu flag and close button. On the other hand, there's no Today screen mock-up available yet. And if you think about Windows Mobile Standard smartphones, there's also a Windows Start menu flag in the Home screen only. This could be in-line with some info Microsoft confirmed use at the recent Windows Mobile 6.5 launch. While the Start and back hardware keys are not required for current Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones, both hardware keys will become a requirement from early next year which means there will be a similar button layout as Windows Mobile Standard phones have it today already.

Again, we should take the info above with the typical grain of salt but it's quite obvious, that the show the direction Windows Mobile will go to.
