      03/03/08 07:18 PM

Spb Mobile Shell 2.0 brings a lot of cool new features to Windows Mobile Professional devices. It's a Today Screen enhancer and a lot more including weather with no subscription fee, visual speed dial, gesture navigation and an application launcher. Think of it as the HTC Touch FLO UI on steroids.

Here's the press release:

St. Petersburg, Russia - March 04th, 2008 - Spb Software House, the world's leading Windows Mobile software vendor, upgrades its outstanding Spb Mobile Shell software to version 2.0. Spb Mobile Shell is an application that completely overhauls the innate Windows Mobile user interface, making it more direct, logical, and slick.

The software first hit the market in 2007 and quickly gained recognition among end-users and mobile device manufacturers. By the end of 2007, Spb Mobile Shell became the best-selling Pocket PC application in the world, was named the best interface/menu improver by Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine, the Best Evolution Application by Handango, and the Best Program for PDA's by the Shareware Industry Awards. Spb Mobile Shell turns the Windows Mobile device into a better phone: gives access to crucial information at a glance, enables one-hand navigation, minimizes the number of taps to launching programs, changing settings, making calls. The new Spb Mobile Shell offers a great choice of haptic animation, it is more futuristic and practical in design, yet it is lower in memory consumption.

"The application is deeply integrated and fits well with the operating system," - comments Yaroslav Goncharov, the Product Manager of Spb Mobile Shell.
