We are making an email program that works on a smartphone. We are looking for design ideas for key screen shots. Top 2 designs win prize, and opportunity to design full UI.
Accepted File Formats:
Standard Web Formats (.jpg, .gif or .png)
We have complete wireframes for an email UI on a custom mobile device and are looking for design concepts focusing on the following categories: icons (e.g., sent, received, network signal indicator, battery charge indicator), window objects (menu, information bar across top of screen, data entry fields, buttons), text format (font, color, spacing), and color schemes (include bright green as one palette option).
Unlike many mobile applications, this is not to be deployed on a smartphone OS like Windows or Symbian. Assume we have total control over the look of the UI -- no soft key buttons, no file structure menu on top, nothing.

The wireframes show all the content that needs to be on each screen.
Action screens would include: menus, submenus, pop-up window alerts, folder message lists.
Pictograms/icons should inlcude: network, battery, sending (email) / working, arrows, scrolling
