This was another view of the planned PIM showing the icons in 'large' and 'small' mode. It was planned to allow the icons to be visible in expanded or standard (small) mode distributed along the top in a single line. The space behind the icons would be made transparent or opaque as required and the icons would appear to float upon the desktop.
The application buttons were:
clock - appointments - the clock would be a live clock telling the time - we have the code for the clock but not for the appointment app.
dial - auto dial contact - not sure this would be needed, left over from organiser
globe - web bookmark - a bookmark interface to the web
typewriter - note taker - we have the code for this
phone - call log
stamp - contacts
tabulator - planner - no idea how to do this currently
glass clipboard - to do list
needs a calendar icon - which I will make for the anniversaries application
The above would need a database.
The function buttons were:
Disc with glass - File open
Letter - email
Scissors - cut
Wood clipboard - paste
Disc with pen - File save
Printer - print
Magnifer - search
It was designed as retaining a traditional interface using icons rather than cues in the PIM layout itself, this was due to the intended migration from Lotus Organiser which had a similar layout with easily recognisable icons across the top.
I have a widget made from the above graphic on my desktop now, it doesn't do anything yet but it shows the concept.
