    Shh... Something is coming... by ~IWSFOD-D on deviantART

    Is this something related to a notification centre? Note the cut off text saying 'not' at the right.

    Looks like notifications. Under the 'not...' you can see 't' (twitter) and the @ sign below that. The next two below that looks like Facebook notifications.

    But I don't understand why its on the right side where the app list should be!

    Nothing is certain for now, till MS announces it.

    if it is true, the horizontal lines may indicate that there will be more than the two "pages" (home screen with tiles and app list), e.g. NC or more homescreens :)

    What kind of source is this?

    I could do this in Photoshop in a few minutes (and it would probably look better and more 'metro-like'), and I'm not even that good at Photoshop ;)

    ...would be a little sad if this were real.

    According to the article on the main page the guy who posted it has worked in areas which would probably allow him to get access to MS facilities.

    It's on the right side because this image is just meant to tease, not give anything away. I think it's a clue! If you notice, there's an arrow pointing to the left in the image. This is also another clue. I'm not getting my hopes up, but if this guy is reliable then I'm betting this is pointing towards a unified notification center.

    The source is solid and would have access. He works for Nokia. This was intended to tease and generate speculation and it has. There have been enough people screaming about a notification center that I believe it will be announced.

    Tom Warren (from The Verge) tweeted that this guy is not a Nokia employee.

    "The guy who posted a "teaser" for Windows Phone does NOT work at Nokia."

    I'm not sure about that. It sounded a bit weird from the start.

    Nokia, HTC and many others have already launched their teasers or events on MWC. Usually when something like a new high end phone or big software update comes out, it's no secret to anybopdy anymore in the release date.

    I'll probably go to **** for this, but it makes me feel good that I was right in the now deleted comments to the article ;-)

    Special thanks to the guy who called me dumb, after I questioned the HTC exclusive app on the picture!

    The only faint hope is that Jax guy from windows phone hacker made a Notification Center app which Microsoft made him take down. He said he wasn't able to discuss the details about why MS made him take it down.

    Striking_Eagle is a fairly reliable dude. Have interacted with him for plenty of mobile OS related stuff since 2010 around WP launch on XDA. He is a regular on there. So if he is teasing, he won't lie. However, that doesn't mean his excitement is a notch high like any other WP lover.
    Patient Windows Phone User since October 2010 till cores and apps do us apart.
