Windows Phone 7 lock screen on steroids!

I like simplicity  of the new Windows phone 7 lock screen. I however think that they should take advantage of the panorama  UI to make more information available at a glance. In the above concept, I have tried to keep the spirit of design but borrowed some ideas from other areas notably S2U2.  All the three screens scroll up with the first leading to the Home screen, the second opens the News hub and the third opens the Zune client. When a user touches any of the notification icons on the bottom, they are presented with with an overlay containing the newest items. While the overlay is up, scroll up and you are taken directly to that item be it missed calls, text messages, facebook updates, game notifications and so on. The notification items on the second screen can be customized to the users desired social networks but they will be limited to four to avoid clutter. The music controls on the third screen are  active and the “now playing” is either the last song played or the last radio station the user tuned to.
