So it looks like older Windows Mobile handsets will soon be able to at least pretend they are Windows Phone 7 Series handsets, hit up the video below and let us know your thoughts.

    Looks nice but really slow compared to WP7.
    I wonder what the guys from MS think about that… Imagine someone seeing a phone with that theme and expecting it to be WP7. If it is slow he might not want to buy a WP7 device and will tell his "experience" to other possible buyers…
    Just my 2 cents.

    I own a WM6.5 device now, but think I'll get a WP7 device instead of installing the theme (even if it means I have to save some money ;-)).
