Windows Mobile developers have been crying out for improved user interface controls, and it seems Microsoft is set to deliver in Windows Mobile 7.

WMExperts have been dropped this slide which shows design mock-ups used internally, and shows a toggle switch, slider, soft keys, pivots and various other smaller elements.

It should be clear that Microsoft has been moving its Windows Mobile 6.5 user interface to closer ape Windows Mobile 7, and with their announced plan to keep WM 6.5 in the market at the same time as 7, the experience may very well be like the difference between TouchFlo2D and touchFlo3D, with the earlier meant for low power devices while the later being intended for more powerful devices with graphics acceleration, but both sharing the same design language.

Looking at the above mock-ups, are you satisfied that Microsoft plans to do enough for Windows Mobile 7, or do you expect even more?  Let us know in the comments.
