Microsoft Revealed The Interface of Windows Phone 7.8
For any owner of Windows Phone 7 “Mango” device, it’s a bummer to know that not all WP devices will see an upgrade to Windows Phone 8 “Apollo”. But apparently they won’t be left behind like many owners of Froyo and Gingerbread devices in the Android community. If you have a Mango device, it is reasonable to say that you should look forward for Windows Phone 7.8.
One significant visual change is the addition of the Metro-style UI on the start screen. Recently, Microsoft showed off a Lumia 900 running an early Windows 7.8 build in the Windows Phone Blog to allow fans get a closer look at how the start screen will look like and how it will behave.
As seen in the video, Microsoft showed numerous interface features such as pin/unpin tiles and switching between different tile sizes. It appears, this is only an early build; so we should see more features in coming weeks.
Hands on with the new Windows Phone 7.8 Start Screen
