SPB Mobile Shell 3.5 Released

SPB Mobile Shell 3.5 was released last night, and has some cool new animations, 3D effects, social networks integration, new emails UI, and many other goodies.

Seems like SPB are taking a little bit from each mobile OS: a little bit of a TouchFlo animated emails reader, some of the Android menus style, a little bit of Samsung's TouchWiz widgets, some of the Palm Pre's synergy, along with SPB's own look & feel. Great stuff.

Here's a short video demonstration:

The Spoon's opinion: Still the number #1 shell for Windows Mobile. Some cosmetic improvements we are not excited about (who cares about the carousel view anyway?), and some important ones (mails, facebook & twitter, shell infrastructure).

If you don't like (or don't have) TouchFlo 3D - SPB Mobile Shell 3.5 is a "must have" software for your Windows Mobile phone.
