Give Your Android A Taste of 7 With Launcher 7
Undecided on what device you will be getting next? Can’t think of a reason to buy a Windows Phone 7 over an Android device? Well, thanks to the efforts of XDA members GinoCorleone and Timo Kujala, you will be able to sleep tight at night knowing that you did not have to make that difficult choice. The team is working on a Windows Phone 7 UI for Android, which is, from everything that I have personally seen to date, the closest resemblance to the full UI experience. All tiles, menu, top bar, and animations are present. In addition, the devs are working to get more tiles so that you can customize the device to your heart’s content.
The UI may have bugs present as it is still a beta version. However, all animations are as smooth as butter. If you have any feedback to leave for the devs, please do so.
I’ve started an icon thread a while ago.
I am working together with my friend Timo Kujala on the app Launcher 7 as some of you might know already. Timo makes the app, I create the icons (see above link)
My goal is to make the icons for Launcher 7 to create a realistic WP7 look and feel. (the app alone is not enough :P)
You can find more information in the UI thread.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
