So last night a ROM and a few blurry screenshots of the
next version of the Windows Mobile OS, Windows Mobile 2005 (aka
Magneto), started floating around
the interweb, and today we're seeing some of results of that ROM being out in the wild—even better screenshots,
including one of the Today screen, have turned up on xda-developers.com. Ok, maybe Windows Mobile 2005 doesn't look all
that different from every other version of Windows Mobile we've ever seen, but from what we've heard all the big
improvements in Magneto are under the hood, not in the GUI.
Anyway, like we said yesterday, it's just a beta that's out there (the final version of the OS supposedly isn't due out until August or September), so don't even waste your time trying to "update" your Pocket PC or Smartphone unless you've messed with this sort of thing before. And maybe not even then.
