    Spb launches Mobile Shell 3.0

    -

    Spb Software, a specialist in mobile software, has released Spb Mobile Shell 3.0, the next-generation user interface for Windows phones. According to Handango Yardstick, Spb Mobile Shell was the world's bestselling application of 2008 among all mobile platforms.

    Spb Mobile Shell 3.0 is said to have been designed for two different smartphone use scenarios: at work and at play. The application offers distinctive 'professional' and 'lifestyle' desktops, integration of picture contacts with Facebook, account-sensitive email indicators, time and weather screens, widgets, responsive kinetic scrolling, signature 3D animation engine, and other assets that are claimed to change the way a Windows phone is used altogether.

    Previous versions of Spb Mobile Shell were shipped by a number of phone makers, such as Acer, O2, Pharos, Sony Ericsson, and Toshiba.

    "It was challenging to design 3.0, as customer expectations are quite high," comments Yaroslav Goncharov the Spb Mobile Shell Product Manager and CTO at Spb Software. "On the other hand, this level of success gave us confidence in our basic ideas and design philosophy, and we certainly feel that Spb Mobile Shell 3.0 has all it takes to be the strong foundation for a host of new and immensely popular Windows phones."

    Spb Mobile Shell 3.0 is available in 24 languages, is compatible with Windows phones running Windows Mobile 5 and later Professional platforms, qVGA, VGA, Square QVGA, and WVGA screen resolutions are supported.
