A new version of Windows Mobile

A couple of sites have now shown footage of what Windows Mobile version 6.5.3 will look like. I found some nice images on engadget.

As you will see from the picture above, the main feature that has been introduced is that the action keys have now been moved to the bottom of the screen. This makes a lot of sense as your thumb is obviously nearer the bottom than the top. Another new feature is a shortcut bar which is accessed in a similar way to the notification bar on the Android devices, by swiping the top of the screen down.  They have also made some rather nice changes to the way the onscreen keyboard works. You can view a demo video I stumbled across on electricpig.

None of these changes are revolutionary and I can only imagine they are trying to get us a bit more used to the way Windows Mobile 7 may look and feel?

Will we get an insight into WinMo 7 at Mobile World Congress? I do hope so as I will be there reporting on any announcements and checking out new devices.
