a different kind of phone
to keep your life in motion
Microsoft is taking a fundamentally different approach to phone software. Windows Phone is a new, holistic design system, from its visually appealing layout and motion to its function and hardware integration.
Breaking the mold of static icons, dynamically updated “live tiles” show users real-time content directly. Create a tile of a friend, and the user gains a readable, up-to-date view of a friend’s latest pictures and posts, just by glancing at Start.
It will come with one-click access to Bing enabling searching from anywhere on the phone, delivering the most relevant Web or local results, depending on the type of query.
Windows Phone creates an unrivaled set of integrated experiences on a phone through Windows Phone hubs. Hubs bring together related content from the Web, applications and services into a single view to simplify common tasks. Windows Phone includes six hubs reflecting activities that matter most to people:
People. An engaging social experience that brings together relevant content based on the person, including live feeds from social networks and photos.
