Windows Mobile 7 images show touch-friendly interface

Windows Mobile logoAn image has surfaced that allegedly shows comparative screenshots between Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Mobile 7 interfaces, including several attributes that appear to be more touch-oriented. The screenshots, posted by WMExperts, reportedly originated from an internal mockup used by Microsoft for design planning.

While small check-boxes still dominate the settings menus in v6.5, the v7 menus utilize toggle sliders similar in appearance to the iPhone OS. If the screenshots are accurate, changing settings would be easier to accomplish with a finger swipe.

Many users of the current Windows Mobile OS have complained that the interface is geared more for stylus input. Several smartphone makers have begun to shift their focus to Android, leading to speculation that the companies prefer a touch-oriented interface.

The calendar view also shows a different approach, diverging from the cramped layout of v6.5. The v7 mockup presents each entry with much larger fonts and clear time-slots, while the items appear to be color coded.

Although the WM7 interface has yet to be finalized, the leaked screenshots are claimed to accurately represent the general design of the upcoming OS.
