Microsoft Zenzui Aims to Revamp Mobile Surfing

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 27, 2007

Microsoft today announced a new startup business focused on improving user interfaces for mobile devices called “ZenZui.”

Microsoft ZenZui User Interface

ZenZui’s differentiator is its unique “zooming” user interface which lets you quickly maneuver from one application or website to another. The interface features a grid of customizable “tiles” which provide links directly to the users areas of interest. Once a tile is chosen, the selected content immediately fills the mobile devices screen.

When you strip away the marketing hyperbole here, the applications really looks very similar to the desktop “widget” technology that’s present in both Mac OSX and Windows Vista, but shrunken down to a mobile format, and with a spiffy navigational interface.
