QVGA Landscape for WMStd 6.1|6.5

What happened to old devices running Windows Mobile Standard edition? In fact, there are a lot of people running devices like Excalibur or Vox, just to mention a few. Well, this theme will raise your hopes and inject new life into your devices.
XDA member gtg465x just released a great looking theme for QVGA resolutions with a Sense like style.
Now you can have weather on your home screen very similar to Sense. This theme comes with its own package of wallpapers and icons.
This is an initial release, so bugs are expected and feedback is much appreciated by developer.

Well, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands lately and this is the result. I’ll probably be ditching my Blackjack II in about a month when I’m eligible for an upgrade, but I had to make one last theme for it.

As far as I’m aware, there are no other sliding panel themes like this for Windows Mobile Standard, and yes, the weather works! I had to write my own application for the weather (edit: and for the clock… I tried just using the HTC font for the clock but it didn’t look that great). Since it’s a sliding panel theme, there are of course pretty sliding animations when navigating around the home screen.

Requirements
Windows Mobile Standard 6.1 or 6.5
QVGA Landscape device

Status Update (6/9/2010)
I’ve discovered several bugs and will be looking into fixing them over the weekend. Here are the bugs I will be working on…
The clock and weather applications both have minor memory leaks that can lead to a crash after they’ve been running for a while.
Notifications sometimes disappear when the clock is updated.
The clock panel steals focus from the notifications and program links panels when it’s updated.
The clock sometimes takes longer than I’de like to update when resuming from the screen off state.
The weather application can’t be installed to storage card.

You can find more information on the theme 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...
