We’ve already looked at how to install a theme on your Windows Mobile phone to give it a Windows Phone 7 Series look in advance of the launch of Microsoft’s next-gen mobile operating system. But here’s a way to get just part of that look. You can install a set of icons inspired by the Windows Phone 7 Series “Metro” user interface.

The icon set includes 29 circular icons in stark black and white. You can then use a utility such as JWMD Icon Changer or Change Start Menu Icons to load the new Icon Set on a Windows Mobile 6.5 phone.

You can find more detailed instructions at the xda-developers forum.
