Here ya go WinMo lovers, a screen shot of the purported next generation Windows Mobile
OS codenamed Crossbow
, courtesy of MS Mobile News. Sure, it could just be a WinMo 5.0 theme for all we know but if this is
the full Pocket PC homescreen above, then we can expect a glossier look, continued softkey support, and a smattering of oh so Vista icons when this, and the SmartPhone version are released in the first half of 2007. As we already heard from Microsoft, Crossbow will feature a new version of Office Communicator and "strong links with Office 2007 and Exchange 12." If all this still leaves you aching for the hotness of Photon
, well, suck it up son 'cause that's not scheduled to hit until the first half of 2008.
