There was a lot of talk last week about the T-Mobile Shadow (a.k.a. HTC Juno) user interface, some couldn’t believe it was still Windows Mobile. The Shadow sports a new homescreen codenamed “Neo” designed by Microsoft in collaboration with HTC and T-Mobile to make the mobile user-experience friendlier. The group at Microsoft responsible for the design is the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) in Beijing China. It’s a little known fact they also worked on the user interface for the Microsoft Surface.
Whilst most of the news coverage and reviews about the Shadow talk a lot about the new interface, there are some less-than-desirable pictures of the interface itself. Which is why I went straight to the source to get some high-resolution screenshots and concept images of the “Neo” interface. They look so much better than the photos.
