Bell Mobility Introduces New User Interface for Windows Mobile Smartphones

Bell Mobility has announced a new user interface that places all data services and features on the main screen of touch screen smartphones.

Soon to be available on a range of Windows Mobile 3G smartphones from Bell, the new interface is being introduced on the HTC Touch Diamond smartphone.

The flexibility of the Windows Mobile operating system facilitated Bell's development of this new user interface, which assists mobile users to discover the latest features and applications on their smartphones as well as favorites such as e-mail and calendar, said Bell.

According to Bell, it offers more than 60 ways to personalize the main screen using different combinations of 25 icons (referred to as bubbles) including headline sports, news, weather, horoscopes, e-mail and more, providing quick access to content and services from their home screen.

Adel Bazerghi, senior vice president of products at Bell, said: "Canadians have embraced smartphones and the mobile data services such as music download, e-mail and TV that are made possible by our high speed 3G network. Making these services easily accessible, the Bell experience gives the user dozens of ways to personalize the home screen, bringing the client experience to the next level."
