are pretty much a dime a dozen at this point -- Pocket PC included
, much to Apple's horror
-- so why not switch it up with something a little more... shall we say, in the "in the family?" Polish firm JGUI has thrown together a skin for Windows Mobile Smartphones and Pocket PCs that mimics Vista (which we hear
ain't bad looking) with a Sidebar clone complete with gadgets, Aero-esque taskbar, and a totally retooled UI for all of the phone's major functions. The screen shots look fabulous (with the possible exception of our mohawk-sporting contact here) and, from what we've seen, put Crossbow
to shame in the eye candy department. Note to Microsoft: "Get your ideas for Photon
here." The Today screen is freeware and the entire package is available for under $25 -- not bad compared to, say, Vista Ultimate.
