Spb Mobile Shell for Windows Mobile Pocket PC
Spb Mobile Shell introduces the next generation user interface while keeping all advantages of Windows Mobile. It dramatically improves the standard interface and adds features that most would expect from a modern PDA phone.

Creating a new user interface is an ambitious goal. If this could be accomplished easily it would have been done already by either Microsoft, an Original Equipment Manufacturer, or an Independent Software Vendor. Spb Software House has the unique expertise necessary to achieve this goal. By using feedback from hundreds of thousands of users and years of experience in the field of mobile interface design, Spb Software House was successful and created Spb Mobile Shell.

Spb Mobile Shell preserves the value of an open platform, even though this is much more difficult than creating a closed vertical platform. A few operators and OEMs have tried to customize their devices to look like a consumer phone, but this left some third party applications and built-in system features unusable (for example, adding a full-screen Today plug-in would crowd out other Today plug-ins).

The key features include:

  • The most relevant information is displayed on one screen
  • Phone style menu
  • Weather forecasts
  • Photo speed dial
  • World time
  • Launcher
  • Bi dynamic tabs on Today
  • Colour based themes
  • Smart contact search
  • Auto-hide mode for Today plug-ins
