Alecs Windows-Phone-7 Taskbar

XDA member optyqus launched his first release, which is a taskbar with WP7 style and icons on the typical light blue colored background.You´ll also find some nice icons to add your personal style on your device.
The taskbar currently works for WVGA & VGA devices running WM6.5 and up, but the developer will work on other resolutions as well.

Built for HTC devices! Chances for this to work on other devices
(Toshiba, Samsung, Asus etc) are small. A Samsung Omnia version
is scheduled.

After almost 4 weeks of work on this project I managed today to finally take out the first cabs. I’m pretty sure this is gonna look good on your phones, it does on mine. Though I don’t particularly like WP7 themes, I must agree that their light blue tone really looks good on a pitch black background, so I decided to set this blue-square look on the taskbar.

INFO (read carefully)

This is a work in progress! Some icons (not many) are not skinned yet; further skinning is scheduled, but for now my work focuses on adapting the icons for W/QVGA. CDMA users will have to wait a few days for an updated cab, as I did not had the time (and patience) to draw the cdma icons for this release. Some of the icons were created by modifying images available on the web, thus credit goes to their authors. Please, do not post questions like “Will this work on my X device?”, just try at your own risk and find out if it does; it’s hard for me to know the effects of these cabs on different roms and devices. Due to the current rom abundance it’s impossible to create an universal taskbar cab file and to make all users happy. I cannot be held responsible for any eventual damage or disfunctionalities following the installation of my cabs.
Don’t share this on other hosts/websites without my permission. You are free to use and modify this project for private use, but don’t modify it and post it here or anywhere else without asking me first. If you are a rom chef and want to include this taskbar into your rom, drop me a PM first (notorious chefs can use this without asking me, but please send me a post-notification)

You can find more information on the original thread.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
