While its existence was already
leaked by Motorola and later
confirmed by Microsoft, nearly nothing is yet known about Microsoft's next
Windows Mobile version which is currently called "Windows
Mobile 6.5". Nevertheless, SmartphoneFrance.info recently published two
screenshots the website calls legit Windows Mobile 6.5 screenshots.
According to these shots and SmartphoneFrance.info, Microsoft will "completely"
(?) revamp the user interface using Windows Mobile's "Confetti" engine (which is
already used in
Mobile 6.1). However, since the two screenshots only show the Today screen,
it's not yet clear if it is another facelift only or if the underlying menu
structures will be revamped as well:
Whatever the left screenshot shows, the right screenshot definitely looks
like a pimped Zune interface (maybe
another indication that Windows Mobile and Zune finally unifies?).
Nevertheless, the Windows Start flag in the upper left corner somewhat irritates
me. If this should be Microsoft's next - hopefully more finger friendly - GUI,
the Microsoft better gets rid of the Windows Start flag.
