We can’t believe we’re about to type these words… But it looks like Samsung may have done an infinitely better job of skinning Windows Mobile 6.5 than HTC — at least out of the gate. Earlier this morning, a truckload of Samsung Omnia II screen captures were uncovered and, well, we’ll be damned if Samsung didn’t do a bang up job with its TouchWiz 2.0 UI on top of WinMo 6.5. Shortly thereafter, ai.rs blog followed up with a new render of the mid-range HTC Mega along with a handful of screenshots. The UI mask is looking good, and a little Sense UI-ish, but it doesn’t look anywhere near as thorough or sexified as Samsung’s efforts. Now to be fair, we know that the Mega is going to be part of HTC’s mid-range crop so we’ll have to wait and see how Windows Mobile 6.5 is looking on the company’s higher end handsets before reaching any real conclusions. Hit the jump for a few screenshots of the UI along with an updated list of reported specs.
