Windows Phone 7 theme for WM
Do you want to have the look´n feel of Windows Phone 7 before you upgrade? XDA member Fireslave presents this nice theme for your Windows Mobile device using Throttle Launcher v1.2.1 and up. Very neat to get to play with a WP7 theme that’s pretty accurate, including some of the page animations and transitions, which is great. Featuring fast and smooth scrolling, the chance to move the tile holding your finger on it, animated contacts amongst others, this theme include pages for music, people, games, pictures, search Bing, settings and calendar, and you can change the accents and background color with ease.
Also, compatible with 3 players: Windows Media Player, Nitrogen, and slide2play.
