Shell out for SPB

Just when you think you cannot get more out of Xperia X1, hops along SPB Mobile Shell 3! It is in Korean but if you remove the Korean customisation (see thread page 2), the English version will be in force.

Widgets are not my thing1. SPB shell has always been decent in usability. This time, it gives a lifestyle spin to the UI using the widget concept in the main screens. The carousel view looks like HTC TouchFlo. If you are a fan of that famous UI, you should enjoy SPB’s latest too. On first launch, it is tad slow (~9s) but subsequently launches are smooth as butter.

Oh I finally loaded the growing panel. Cool application/panel but not useful. Excellent for showing what X1 can do but definitely not for daily use.

  1. I cannot even bring myself to load widgets on my new MBP []
