Let’s a take a serious look at how the iPhone 3.0 software compares to Windows Mobile present — and future, in Windows Mobile 6.5.
Windows Mobile 6.5: WinMo has a couple of new things to play with. Probably the most talked about has been the “honeycomb” start menu, which recently lost the hexagonal cells but will still keep the overall feel, and with larger icons. There’s also the new Today Screen, with more finger-friendly indicators with more information.
iPhone 3.0: Apple’s sticking with the tried and true grid launcher. One thing a number of people have been clamoring for is a way to better group the icons, and we can’t blame them at all. Moving the icons around is still very simple. Touch and hold, then just slide it where you want it. That’s something we’re pretty worried about with the WinMo 6.5 hexa-start screen.
