Now Sony also copies Windows’s Live Tiles


Despite many complaints by Windows users, and slow adoption of Windows Phone and Windows 8, Microsoft’s Metro UI has been incredibly influential, changing the look of both iOS and Android, and generally causing a flattening of design all around the web.

Sometimes however companies go beyond being merely inspired, and go all the way to copying UI elements en masse.

The latest to do so is Sony, with their Xperia Z3 tablet, where they clearly are trying to pretend that their Android tablet is as powerful and useful as a Windows one.

See the video demoing the tablet at IFA 2014 posted by Pocketnow below.
