Windows Phone 8 concept shows serious potential

A few bits and pieces of Windows Phone 8 have leaked out over the past few months and we fully expect that next month we will see Windows Phone 8 unveiled at a developer conference in June.

The concept above is straight forward, take the Start screen and modify it to fit on a phone. The end result, at least from the looks of the concept, appears to work quite well and elegantly ties both platforms together. Is this the direction Microsoft is moving towards? That we do not know but the concept does open the door to a new avenue of exploration.

The concept takes the Start screen that we have all become familiar with but breaks it up in to bite sized chunks that can be displayed on any Windows Phone. It would appear swiping left or right would bring you to a new set of tiles, similar to how Android has multiple screens.

Windows Phone 8 has already had some of its features leaked and if you need a refresher, you can read more here.

We are only a few weeks away from the unveiling of Windows Phone 8, let us know what your predications are in the comments below.
