Manila Slider 3D for WM
What about having some sliders in 3D for your Windows Mobile device? XDA member tantin75 has made it possible. The original Manila icons have been re worked to give the simulation of a multidimensional look, working on patched Manila 2.5 and should also work on 2.1.
When you select the tab you want to use, the rest of the icons will remain lay down like giving the selected tab a nice effect. Working on WM6.5 and up.

– you must have manila 2.5 (but may work also on 2.1: test at your own risk ),
– your manila must be patched to accept compressed files.
The cab includes only the original icons reworked presented below (no programs and no ereader for now), the slide bar and the slide tab.
You can find more information in the application thread.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
