Is it just me or is anybody seeing these shots of WinMo 6.5 as a step back from the Zune interface? The icons are not consistent and they look cluttered and complicated. The text is not even anti-aliased and the alignment is somewhat off. The honeycomb interface wastes space on the left and right that can accommodate 4 column icons. (maybe made that way for touch-screen devices) and about that wallpaper, maybe they could have used some cool landscape or abstract graphics that would be consistent in every screenshot of the operating system (ala clown fish for the iPhone).

Now these are waaay cooler than the initial screenshots above. Nice icons, beautiful wallpaper and good balance of graphical elements.
If I’m not mistaken, the system font of this OS is Verdana. Hope they consider using Helvetica, the Microsoft font Segoe, or just any other sans serif fonts. A perfect example would be Palm’s WebOS’ very hip Avenir font.
