Microsoft’s Neo: The T-Mobile Shadow Homescreen, with Screencast

Microsoft’s Windows Mobile Team Blog has all the information you might want to know about the T-Mobile Shadow, T-Mobile’s hot new $150 Windows Mobile smart phone. The Shadow runs a custom home screen interface, designed by Microsoft and codenamed Neo. It’s got access to almost all your vital info in a large, bold style (instead of cramming it all in with tiny text and cryptic icons), with nice transition animations.

Here’s a screencast they made, showing how you navigate through Neo:

Here’s hoping some hackers pull this homescreen to work on other Windows Mobile phones. Whether they do or not, I’ve already promised my wife this phone to replace her T-Mobile SDA when our contract is up.

  1. Nice video :) . But why is it not 240×320 like the original (the aspect ratio is off)

  2. No idea. YouTube screwed up the import somehow.
