    Well guys, I just wanted to show you proud WP8 owners something funny.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result

    You can get launcher/shell for Android phones, which will make it look like a (fake) WP8 device. Which is cool and all, but what I find little bit frustrating is the ****load of positive comments on the app. Just buy a WP8 device already and let the WP8 community grow

    Maybe they like the interface but don't want to buy into Microsoft's ecosystem.

    As far as my marketing knowledge goes, this would be perfect free advertising for windows phone 8, as it does not feature all the fingerlicking good stuff of WP8

    Prior art, someone did it in the 90's, its not new.

    I've used the UI in question from the android market. It moves around nicely, but kind of pointless from a demonstration standpoint, very few of those apps will be present on wp. It would be better to demo wp with a full UI launcher + wp apps (that are available now, not 'soon') in one package. The processing power is there, just needs a wpfan to setup the demo.
    awwwww how sweeeeeet. thanks !
