WPCentral is claiming that some form of improved notification system involving the lock screen is coming to Windows Phone 8.

While they are being coy regarding the details they confirmed Microsoft have given developers in Windows Phone 8 “access to the Lock screen with the added ability to have custom notifications”.

They go on to say “There are actually four options for developers to choose from with one of them being extremely creative as it will give you a fresh look to your Lock screen numerous times a day. “

The new concept is not demoed in this picture of the Windows Phone 8 lock screen above, and one wonders if we will not see the arrival of Live Tiles of sorts for the lock screen.
