Windows Phone 8.1 concept envisions serious polish

The guys over at 1800PocketPC have come up with a Windows Phone 8.1/Blue concept for what they hope will be included in the next update to the Windows Phone platform, and their design envisions some serious polish for Microsoft's smartphone operating system.

Included in their designs are an increase to the amount of tiles to a six-wide grid as well as a new super-large 6x4 tile, a "device center" which combines quick settings with a heavily-requested notification center, an "all apps" area that features lists and categories, improved cloud syncing of data and settings, and a first-party Files app that integrates local storage with SkyDrive.

Overall we have to say the concept is pretty impressive, and it's worth heading over to 1800PocketPC to see all the full mock-ups. Is this what you'd like to see when Microsoft finally reveals their plans for Windows Phone 8.1? Let us know what you'd like to see in the comments below.
