It’s nice to see Microsoft paying more attention to design and specifically the user experience of Windows Mobile, but this is a little disturbing. To be frank, I don’t understand the whole fashion scene so when Microsoft announced at CTIA 09 that Windows Mobile 6.5 will feature some exclusive themes from fashion designer Issac Mizrahi, I was highly skeptical. Needless to say this video from the Microsoft keynote reconfirms my doubts.
Instead, I think it’d be better if Windows Mobile 6.5 shipped with a bunch of high-quality photographs for wallpapers. May I even suggest Hamad Darwish.
