Attack of the iClone Daily Double: WinMo 6.5 Phone iCon Looks Strangely Familiar...

One of these things is just like the other; one of these things is exactly the same...

Wow, we just got through listing the various ways Micrsoft is iCloning our beloved iPhone and its services, and now this? Bad enough they've taken the old hex grid from our AD&D days, but the iPhone Phone App, all green and rounded and gradient like?

We've got to think this is some customized icon, like a contact photo or something, because there's no way Microsoft includes it in even an official beta build, is there? Still, having Apple's graphics highlighting the latest viral Windows Mobile 6.5 leaks can't be good for anybody. Ugh.

Speaking of ugh, bonus points to anyone who can tell us what that background picture is before it hatches baby aliens and begins consuming us all...

It does look strangely familiar... can't quite place it.

Rbwright says:

It's a pair of aviator glasses or something... enough to induce a migraine. What a bad design.

Steve says:

There's no way that icon is from Microsoft. Someone used a custom iPhone icon.

sting7k says:

I don't think that picture is real. Why is there a giant X in the top right corner? Looks totally out of place.

Wesley says:

Could this be just the picture assigned to the contact who's dialing?

Jeremy Sikora says:

Wesley comes up with a winning idea... looks like that's exactly what it is to me. It does say incoming call.

Steve says:

:shocked: Yeah, but that's the same thing Rene said (a contact photo), and I agreed.

Steve says:

oops... that was supposed to be a :shock: face

Harscelle says:

It's a drop of water on a cloth having leaf pattern on it.

zeagus says:

Yeah, hehe, the iPhone is calling ;)

Frog says:

The answer and ignore buttons. It "appears" you have to slide them?

Chobbs says:

It looks like a pair of sunglasses with an alligator clip attached to the nose bridge and it is conducting electricity????
Ps love this site. Keep up the good work!!

Steve says:

It looks like an image someone made by combining different elements we would waste our time analyzing and discussing what the hell it's supposed to be. :lol:

Steve says:

That should've been "... SO we would..."
