Microsoft admitted itself - during the MÃƒÂ¶bius conference - it's a while already
that the last (free) Power Toys for Windows Mobile were released, in fact it was
the Homescreen Designer (or whatever) which is a couple of years old now but so
far, there wasn't anything dedicated for Windows Mobile 5.0 devices. While
Microsoft isn't releasing another Homescreen designer (yet), they plan to launch
something even better - a couple of free Power Toys for your Windows Mobile
device itself - namely a Homescreen photo browser and a Homescreen photo dialer.
Inspired by Palm's implementation of the Todayscreen photo dialer, something
similar will come soon for Windows Mobile based Smartphones:
This is nothing groundbreaking but a nice add-on to your Homescreen anyway,
since you can call your most called contacts straight ahead from the Homescreen
of your device.
The second Power Toy is pretty similar to the photo dialer but
a photo browser which lets you browse through our photo archive/having your
photo archive displayed on your Homescreen and you can open the photos right
from there as well:
Both Power Toys should be released soon, a launch date wasn't given yet.
