Windows Phone mobile OS demonstrated


This isn’t directly HTPC or home theater related, but I couldn’t help but noticing the similarities to the Zune interface with some blue-ish media center colors. Maybe this is the evolution of the portable MCE and the Zune where everything will be merged…something like an iPhone? Not even calling it Windows Mobile anymore but Windows Phone–guess it was confusing people.

Seen for the first time are Microsoft’s new 24-bit menu icons for accessing all of the Windows Phone applications. The icons replace the standard folder view seen after pressing the Start button on the current version of the Windows Mobile OS. The Market Place for Windows Phone is also demonstrated. This is the online software application repository for the Windows Phone, which is much like Apple’s Itunes App Store on the Iphone.
