Windows Mobile 7 home screen  (Source: learnbemobile.com)
WinMo7 interface leaks early

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is scheduled to make a keynote address today at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to announce its next generation mobile operating system. While that keynote address is still roughly two hours away, shots of the Windows Mobile 7 interface have leaked onto the web.

Engadget was able to score some images of the interface courtesy of learnbemobile. Interestingly, the shots were gleamed from banners posted on the walls in the convention center.

From the shots available, we can see that Microsoft has taken a very simplified approach to what appears to be the main home screen for the operating system. Whereas the iPhone OS is littered with icons on its home page (twenty icons including four on the dock for Phone, Mail, Safari, and iPod), Windows Phone 7 Series has icons for Phone, Text Messaging, Email, Facebook, Pictures, Xbox Live, and "Me".

The unannounced phone itself appears to have a Home button which is flanked by a "Back" button and what appears to be a "Search" button.

Stay tuned as we bring you more detail on Microsoft's latest initiative to battle the iPhone OS and Android.

I have it and I like it as device, but as a phone alone... probably the worst phone I had recently. Vodafone coverage is decent here in Auckland NZ, but on a few spots where BB Pearl and Nokia E63 give me half signal strength, my 3Gs gives me 1 bar and often "No Service". My wife's and my friend's 3Gs are doing the same, so it is not just one phone.

But it is very versatile and smooth PDA, and great eBook reader. Chat, email and web (as long as you don't need Flash) are quite useful and well executed. With better phone performance and less Apple's paranoid limitations, it would be perfect. As it is, for me it is still OK.
