SPB Mobile Shell 5.0 now available for Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile

SPB Mobile Shell 3.5Mobile software maker SPB is launching SPB Shell 5.0. Like previous versions, SPB Shell basically replaces your phone's default user interface with a customizable "shell." What's new in version 5.0 is that SPB Shell ain't just for Windows Mobile anymore. It's also available for Symbian and Google Android phones.

SPB Shell 5.0 also has a new 3D engine, support for 3D widgets, and 3D applications for viewing photos, playing media, and viewing weather forecasts. It also features integration with social networks including Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

The update also brings support for multitouch displays and haptic feedback which provides a tactile response when you press the screen.

If you're looking for a way to dress up your smartphone while waiting for Windows Phone 7 Series to hit the streets, SPB Shell 5.0 might tide you over. Or if you just can't stand the default UI for your Android or Symbian device.

The SPB web site doesn't feature download or purchase pages for SPB Shell 5.0 yet. But version 3.5 for Windows Mobile is available for $29.95. No word on the pricing for the new version.
