Spb Software's Mobile Shell is one of the most popular downloads for Windows Mobile Pro touch screen phones and PDAs. It replaces the Today Screen with a more attractive and powerful set of screens that are touch-friendly. Companies like Toshiba and E-TEN (Acer) even sell WinMo phones with Mobile Shell pre-installed rather than trying to develop their own touch UI.
Version 3.0 is out now, and it adds even more UI elements including some that remind us of Touch Wiz widgets and HTC's Touch enhancements. Here's info from their press release:
