Nokia Looking Forward To Redesign There Windows Phone, Probably look Like This (Images)
It came as to a small degree bit of shock when Nokia and Microsoft announced a partnership in 2011 that might see the ailing Finnish mobile device maker implement the Windows Phone OS in its next-generation of smartphone releases. The plan was for Nokia to examine out their commitment to the Symbian software before ultimately designing and rolling out a range of a variety of smartphones powered fully by the Microsoft mobile OS.
The introduction of the Lumia family of handsets has been well received by the industry, with users usually agreeing that the elegant Metro-style look of the OS had been well matched with a very attractive and purposeful range of devices. However, things might have been entirely completely different if the graphical stars had aligned, that might have resulted within the Lumia handsets providing an entirely completely different user experience.
The guys over at PocketNow managed to get their hands on some concept styles that had been created by a senior analysis and Development Designer at Nokia who had been functioning on new styles for the Windows Phone user interface. From the look of the pictures,it might appear that the graphics designer in question had opted to completely abandon the gorgeous Metro-style UI that we all recognize and love concerning Windows Phone, instead choosing one thing that appears a rather weird blend of Symbian and Android.
Few things that we reported at the time of the partnership, however not plenty of individuals appear to understand is that Microsoft gave sure artistic freedoms to Nokia in order for the deal to go through. The Finnish handset made were giving the go-ahead to redesign the Windows Phone user interface for their Lumia devices in order to put their own stamp on the OS. If the leaked styles are the result of what we might have seen, thankfully Nokia selected to not made the changes for the Lumia 800, Lumia 710 and Lumia 900.
The painter in question, who is also credited with functioning on styles for the Nokia 808 PureView, has since moved away from the Windows Phone team and is currently contracted to Accenture who are the team answerable for dealing with all Symbian-based work on an on-going basis. Nokia have apparently commented on these styles, claiming that it didn’t represent any official design ideas for a new user interface which they were purely personal mock-ups done in the designers own time.
