Nokia fan envisions a post-Mango UI update for Windows Phone 7


I know not all readers are fans, but I love design concepts, be they cars or phones. Above is Jozef Kocur’s idea of how Microsoft should update the Windows Phone 7 UI come Mango, and I must say I don’t see much I disagree with.

First Jozef would like to see the Zune media control bar updated to add more functionality, like toggling WIFI, Bluetooth or phone profiles, accessed by swiping left.  He would also like more flexible background theming, including semi-transparent live tiles.

thumbnailsHis next new concept is a more Metro multi-tasking UI, noting the horizontal scrolling version shown of at Mobile World Congress 11 is out of keeping with the typical vertical scrolling of lists in Windows Phone 7.

His last innovation is shortcut tiles, which would be folders of sort, allowing similar apps to be grouped together.

Read his whole concept in more detail on his blog here.

What do out readers think of these proposed changes? Welcome, or is Metro perfect already? Let us know below.
