Windows Mobile v.7 to incorporate Zune?

06Jan08

Thanks to InsideMicrosoft we now have a well-written well-informed article exposing the features in development for the next version of Windows Mobile.

Windows Mobile 7 will use touch gestures, similar to how the iPhone does. You will be able to flick through lists, pan, swipe sideway, draw on the screen. A lot of emphasis has been put on making navigation easier and doing away with scrollbars, including a new scroll handle that allows for multiple ways of finding items extremely fast.

Windows Mobile 7 will use motion gestures, something the iPhone does not. It will not use an intricate and complicated series of gyroscopes and accelerometers.

The article is very informative and was well worth reading. In addition to the new interface features they are adding in it also shows Zune connectivity – possibly allowing one to purchase a song from the Zune store wirelessly – similar to what the iPhone offers today.

Not due till 2009 so don’t get your hopes up.
