ASUS looks poised to set the bar in the Windows Mobile 6.1 world with their new WinMo6.1 UI. Of course, we’re talking about a WM6.1 touchscreen UI here – having a touchscreen is all the rage these days, and ASUS is cashing in on that trend. Case in point – the ASUS ZX1 Lamborghini smartphone.
ASUS started with Windows Mobile 6.1 as a foundation and built their own “Multi-Home” 3D Cube interface on top – it’s a lot like HTC’s TouchFLO interface, but more extensive and sleeker (but don’t count HTC out just yet, they’re working with Microsoft to improve and better integrate TouchFLO in upcoming WinMo releases). The fancy new UI gives the user quick access to “ASUS Today” (the today screen, ASUS-style), life, and business applications at the flick of a finger – including apps like the built-in ringtone editor, photo album with “CoverFlow” view, world-clock, etc. All in all, the ASUS Multi-Home UI is reminiscent of the Apple Multi-Touch UI – from finger flicks and rotating/sliding application screens, Apple really did spark a touchscreen revolution.
Check out the video below to get an idea for how the new ASUS Windows Mobile 6.1 UI works. When Apple started to demo its multi-touch interface, they used a white dot to signify finger-inputs. It’s the same with this video, keep that in mind when you watch it.
