Verizon has an ad flying about the interwebs featuring a wP8 device with a landscape UI.

Currently, the tiles homescreen is in portrait only, but here, we have it in landscape.

Folks conclude it’s just a little mix up to fit the phone into the advert properly.

Note that instead of the tiles simply rotating to have a horizontal swiping, it seems to still be an up/down vertical scroll. The folks who made this just took the portrait screenshot, placed the screen on top. Hence the small tiles look like one of the larger ones. It would be an interesting solution since the tiles won’t have to move about in positions or rotate on their own axis. You just see a zoomed in view.

The whole width contact is interesting.
