First is that, while Motorola has not done a consumer Windows Mobile handset for a while, the company is still very busy working on Windows Mobile 7 and the software associated with it.
The post confirms new UI controls in WM7, DirectShow components, the extensive use of Silverlight in built-in apps such as Bing and MSN, a new IE7 browser for Windows Mobile, a new Media Transfer Protocol for WM7, the presence of USB OTG, a game user experience focus, work on a soft keyboard and Microsoftâ€™s launch plans, which includes a Windows Mobile 7 Sharepoint website.
All the job postings taken together indicate Windows Mobile 7 will be quite a tour de force and far from a small update, addressing most consumer issues such as browsing, gaming and media access, and that earlier rumours of user interface development using Silverlight are real.
