Is there “something coming” from Microsoft for Windows Phone?
Earlier there was a picture circulating on Twitter about a type of infographic displaying hints at upcoming features possibly for Windows Phone 8. This news is speculated to come to us at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, but after many were buying it right up as a sort of “leak” by a Nokia employee, there was further info posted at WPcentral.com expressing that this wasn’t a leak or meant to be one and it wasn’t let out of the bag by a Nokia employee but instead a student involved in a Windows Phone program. Below is what the mysterious poster shared on DeviantArt along with the picture:
“Quite a trip at Redmond. There is something I am not allowed to talk but allowed to tease. It is not confirmed in case you make a guess (either right or wrong , I won’t answer ). That is what tease meant to be”
Now as this could be a side tracking of actual leaked info, this is what Daniel Rubino posted in an update on their article earlier:
[Update 6 PM ET: The source of the article wishes to have his info removed and denies that this was a tease for a notification center. In fact, he’s not an employee of Nokia but rather a student involved in a Windows Phone program, making this info dubious at best.In fact, we’re hearing the opposite now, that there won’t be a notification center announced at MWC. Due to this new info we are not standing by the story. Sorry, folks.]
Things to notice in the picture are the “left-pointing” arrow hinting at a Notification center especially with the info that is cut off on the right of the graphic. First thing I noticed was the color of the background possibly hinting at new color choices for the background theme and not only for tiles.
This sits as a rumor for now but we’ll see soon enough what is announced by MSFT at the MWC 2013 in Barcelona.
