The eagle-eyed folks of learnbemobile
have come across this stupendous leak of Microsoft's forthcoming Windows Mobile 7 OS
. It would appear that some last minute alterations were taking place under the covers in Barcelona, though apparently no one bothered to check if there were cameras around before lifting said covers. You can see what appears to be some kind of Xbox Live
integration -- which was heavily rumored
already -- taking up a corner of what's presumably a new home screen for the OS. There are also big, finger-loving notice icons for calls, text messages, and email, with sections for Facebook, Pictures and "Me" filling out the rest. We don't have any more info than these few shots, and the aforementioned site just has the images camped out on its Facebook page, but it definitely looks to be the real deal. If this is the new face of Windows Mobile, color us excited for today's event
-- it looks like a radical departure (or at least a crazy skin). You can check out a few more shots in the gallery below.
