“Something Coming” From Microsoft..Possible Notification Center? Landscape Homescreen?

somethingOk, I;ll try to contain my excitement till this post is over, basically a Nokia employee went over to the Microsoft labs and saw some “stuff he’s not allowed to talk about” but he’s allowed to tease. After which he made the image above-

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”

In of itself, that’s not much but digging deeper we can learn a little bit about IWSFOD-D, including his XDA name (Strike_Eagle) and his Facebook bio where it’s revealed that he, Scotty Le, works for Nokia in Software Quality Assurance for Windows Phone 8. Before his time at Nokia, he was employed at HTC where he was a Pre-Developer/Software Debugger for Windows Phone 7.8 and 8.

Reading into the image we can see the edge of a notifications center, but one that looks slightly different than the normal notifications in the ME hub. The other thing is that the image is in landscape mode… yes landscape; perhaps a hint at a new screen orientation for Windows Phone?

The third thing I noticed was the words at the top right of the screen; “Windows phone| S”, I have no idea what that means; but perhaps the next WP update name will start with an “S”?


Thanks for the tip @dkm1101
