RUMOR: Is Windows Mobile 6.5 showing here its face the first time?

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 Windows 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.

Cheers ~ Arne
