Sony Ericsson has asked Spb Software to develop a user interface panel for the Xperia X1. This will be based on Spb Mobile Shell, this company’s an alternate user interface for Windows Mobile devices.
This application will take advantage of the X1’s panel system, which is designed to replace the standard Windows Mobile UI with one that takes better advantage of this upcoming smartphone’s 3-inch WVGA (800 by 480 pixel) touchscreen.
“The addition of Spb to our panel ecosystem gives Xperia X1 users the opportunity to customize their handsets with an already established interface for the Windows Mobile environment, alongside enjoying the eight other active desktops through the unique Xperia Panel user interface,” said Mats Ekstrand, VP and Head of Convergence Unit at Sony Ericsson.
This custom version of Spb Mobile Shell will comes with all X1 devices as a free download.
