There are several fairly new UI controls for Windows Mobile that are now available, to enhance the looks of your application.
Resco have been around for a while, and have some great visually appealing tools. Their 'Tab' control looks superb, and is finger friendly. Their tools allow you to give a more modern look to your apps after the challenge thrown down by some of the iPhone apps. I am a big fan of the Resco toolset, and have used their controls in applications to improve both appearance and functionality.
Now, there is a 'new kid on the block' - BeeMobile. They have some nice looking controls, including transparent controls, which has long been missing from the standard toolbox.
Both companies offer evaluation copies, check them out and see if they can help you with your development.
