Windows Mobile 7 To Focus On Touch and Motion Gestures

bink.nu has found this InsideWindows link with a great inside Windows Mobile 7 review:

Windows Mobile 7 will use touch gestures, similar to how the iPhone does. You will be able to flick through lists, pan, swipe sideway, draw on the screen. A lot of emphasis has been put on making navigation easier and doing away with scrollbars, including a new scroll handle that allows for multiple ways of finding items extremely fast.

Windows Mobile 7 will use motion gestures, something the iPhone does not. It will not use an intricate and complicated series of gyroscopes and accelerometers. Instead, it will use the camera on the phone to detect motions and create appropriate actions. You will be able to shake, twist and otherwise manipulate the phone and get things done. The phone will be able to perform actions when placed face down on a surface, and it will know when it is in your pocket or bag.
Please check all of the post, it's loaded with cool features. Will they hit WM7? Some of them will most definitively do - after my first contact with iPhone, they'll have to! Thanks, Apple, you've woke up a monster :)
