It sports the looks and features of Microsoft's mobile OS interface
Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform won’t be available on shelves for another month or so, yet owners of Android devices can already get a taste of the looks and feel of the platform on their handsets.A new WP8 Launcher is now available for download in the Google Play Store, and can be found on this page.
While looking and working pretty well, the app comes only with a Chinese user interface at the moment, which is a major drawback, that’s for sure.
With the new app, users will get a tile-based interface on their Android devices, and will also provide them with the option to use Windows Phone 8 gestures to move around menus.
Additionally, the WP8 Launcher comes with support for pinning apps to the homescreen, and also features a lockscreen, the same as Microsoft’s mobile platform does.
