➟ Near-Final Screenshots of Windows Phone 7

When it’s all laid out over three pages like this, the Windows Phone 7 UI looks consistently unattractive to me. The large truncated words leading off the screen, the plainness of the text entry boxes, the use of all-lowercase captions, the occasionally strange leading, and that boldtype software keyboard.
I get that it’s meant to be flat and text-driven, but it just doesn’t work for me. Too much negative space and a complete lack of pictorial cues is not something I want to be navigating on a small mobile device.
