    I just hope they support all Android devices, and not pick and choose like they did with WM and Mobile Shell 3.0.

    Just got this letter from SPB:

    "Sorry for not answering for quite a while, I've been EXTRA BUSY and then tried to be extra relaxed :) At this point I have to stress that we haven't put the Shell 5.0 to market, just announced it to be able to show it in Barcelona and enter talks with prospective partners. I sincerely apologise if the press release was misleading, this is entirely my fault, and would not repeat in future. The offer to test MS in the end of the press-release is reffering to MS3.5.

    About the release date - it is roughly June (not an official statement, can't quote me on that :))) as the software is pretty much in it's alfa state as of today. Our goal is to release it for all the announced platforms simultaneously, takes some extra work. Meanwhile, there's an option to enter the beta-testing program, we'll make a separate announcement when it starts.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding."

    This is another example where Tech Blogs got excited too soon or without checking their sources.

    Oh well, I have until June to get a decently rooted phone to try this new app.

    Spb has been leaked. I'm surprised no one has posted on this, or maybe I didn't search good enough. But anyways, the beta is leaked and out in the wild.

    While I won't post a link to the file (FOR OBVIOUS REASONS) I will post a link from DroidLife showing their review.

    SPB Mobile Shell 5.0 UI Beta Released, Here is a Quick Look - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    If you have a Droid X and have "happened" to come across the file, this should help you out. Took me a while to get it to work, but I did.

    Ok se

    Thank You..for the directions
    Works on Fission 2.61 DroidX
    Works fine so far but I could not keep this long enough to warrant $29.99 that I paid for the Omnia i910 &i920 MS version.
    I'll try it for a day or so and see if I can like it better. I missing my ADW already.:eek:
