Windows Mobile 7 coming soon -- here's some leaked details
The following technical details aren't official, so they could just be a mix of guesswork and rumor -- take them with a pinch of salt!
So, here we go: at the unveiling on the 15th, in Barcelona, it's likely that we'll only see the user interface, with actual functionality/developer stuff left until a later date. The UI will apparently be very similar to the Zune HD interface, but with a revamp to the 'start' screen. There will also be full Zune integration (including desktop sync).
Software-wise, there'll be a marketplace with 'try before you buy' (hooray!), full Xbox integration (why?), support for social networking (via apps, I presume) and... wait for it... no multitasking!
It's the last one that makes me wonder if these specifications are real, or just the work of a jealous and vicious Apple fanboy. After the whole 'OMG NO MULTITASKING ON MY IPHONE???' furore, would Microsoft really not include it in Windows Mobile 7?
We'll see next week!
