Windows Mobile 7

It’s been a while since I’ve done the good ol’ scouring of LinkedIn to find Windows Mobile 7 content, so I figured I would snap to it today to see what I could find. Luckily, I found a couple of great things along with a few honorable mentions! First, we’ll start with what appears to be the name of a central element of Windows Mobile 7′s user interface. If I’m not too far out of bounds here, I would venture to say the UI we’re all familiar with in regards to WM7 is the one the following is speaking of:

 

 

Central Menu Experience

 

Program Manager
Microsoft IDC, Hyderabad
(Information Technology and Services industry)
April 2008 — May 2008 (2 months)

Designed a completely New feature (Central Menu Experience) which is integrated in Windows Mobile 7. Responsible for getting Central Menu Experience features code-ready for CTP release well within specified time-frame. (Link)

 

“Central Menu Experience” does indeed sound like the perfect (if not downright obvious, but I’m not going to just assume) description for the UI we have seen in all the supposed Windows Mobile 7 screen shots, considering it all looks, well… central, I suppose. But as I’ve said before, I can’t imagine Microsoft will actually launch Windows Mobile 7 using said UI. Perhaps it has been used for the CTP UI for developers/vendors working with it (considering the mention of Central Menu Experience features being code-ready for the CTP). Obligatory image:

Windows Live for Mobile Code Name “Catalyst”

 

Catalyst For WM Seven:
Client : Microsoft Corporation (Since December 2007 to May 2009)

The new Windows Mobile 7 devices will give the richest mobile connection to Catalyst. Catalyst consists of Messenger, Mail, Spaces and Photos. All these applications help user keeping in touch with friends, family, and co-workers. (Link)

 

That one is fairly self-explanatory. Any of you Windows Mobile fanatics out there have any additional information on, “Catalyst?”

 

Windows Mobile 7 Camera and Photo Application

 

Lead Led a PM team and responsible for the strategies define, design and implementation for Windows Mobile 7 camera and photo application. (Link)

 

And now, for the honorable mentions:

Led HW Board bring-up activity effort for Window Mobile 7 OS based Mobile product having QUALCOMM 72xx chipset. The board bring up activities includes implementing MAX controller based keypad driver, configuring I2C and GPIO driver and coordinating HW-SW architecture meetings. (Link)

 

Beyond everything posted above, there were additional mentions of Windows Mobile 7, but they were all generic/vague, so I didn’t worry about posting them. Likewise, I didn’t elaborate as much as I wanted to on all of the information above, but I wanted to post something since it’s been a while (things are busy here aside from the freelance journalism thing, so bear with me). With that in mind, I’ve got a lot more to post here in the near future, so stay tuned!

  1. The mention of it running on a qualcomm 72xx chipset is interesting. I know there are many variations, but isn’t that a rather old and slow platform? Perhaps this means that WM7 is more efficient than the reference chassis would seem to indicate.
