Joe Belfiore, who heads Windows Phone group at Microsoft today wished MetroUI for its 3rd birthday. In 2010 at MWC, Microsoft first revealed Windows Phone 7 series and the devices running Windows Phone 7 was launched on on Oct 11th 2010. It is not just Windows Phone OS, the MetroUI experience now known as ‘ModernUI’ was also launched for the first time 3 years ago. The ‘ModernUI’ experience is now available across Microsoft products such as Windows 8, Xbox, Office, Outlook and more. I expect Microsoft to evolve ModernUI and Windows Phone OS to much more great experiences that delights consumers around the world.
Happy Birthday, Windows Phone and MetroUI ! !
