    Hmm the last two look similar. The cards, well everyone wants a piece of that. The guys over at Crackberry says its theirs. Too bad, there little activity on WebOS Nation. That is where cards come from.

    The cards UI for multitasking originated with webOS, but at this point is present with BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone, and to some extent Android (more so with third-party overlays I'm looking at you, HTC Sense than for stock Android, however). As for the new iOS 7 lockscreen, it's very reminiscent of Android's (complete with the 'bubbles' live background and all).

    Take a look at this: Apple's iOS 7 'copied' everyone - and that's a good thing | Android Central

    Whats even more interesting, Apple never said any of this was revolutionary or innovative. They were sneaking in snarky comments about their running out of felt and leather. Apple played catch up with iOS 7. But it is good stuff..

    The problem I see with MS is that we will probably prevail over IOS in the next update, but that won't be until later this year or early 2014, 6 months at least in which IOS will probably be on their way with bigger and better things, it seems as though we will always be behind

    Well, at least they made iOS better. That's the point.

    At least I don't need to open an app for that ;)

    iOS7 does look very good, but I think the changes are largely cosmetic; the OS doesn't seem to fundamentally interact with data any differently. So yes, it looks pretty, and there are some new bells and whistles, but it doesn't seem to allow live tiles or be quite as 'person centric' as the WP experience is.

    I do agree though that MS needs to get on the ball and update their OS more frequently and more effectively. The longer they take between iterations the farther they have to go each time. And that's never good or easy.

    LOL! I love the irony of people getting up in arms about Apple copying Microsoft. The graphical user interface, icons on a desktop, mouse input, an app store, the whole concept of an app - who's been copying who?

    The only thing I find hypocritical is that they are copying off of other operating systems, but suing folks for doing the same

    Anyhow, love the look, but hate iPhone's battery life. Until then, rocking Android and possibly a 720

    Not really way behind. If anything, the correct interpretation would be iOS is ahead of WP and Android (and whatever that 4th OS is, BlackBerry, I think?)

    Though, I'd say WP is really catching up. Who knew that an OS with a marketshare would put it in borderline niche territory would have a higher percentage of satisfied customers than a leading OS?

    you should see their multitasking screen. Exact same as in windows phone... except it seems you can swipe up one of the preview frames to close (just like in W8, and what we all want on WP8)
    LOL this is rich. The Windows Phone multitasking screen is a direct rip-off of WebOS

    Right on iOS's heels? It's a good 20% behind. Leaving Android way behind? It's only 4% behind

    Yes. As an erudite statistician once said, "torture numbers enough and they'll tell you anything".

    I find it funny how people are going on about how much this looks like WP. Sorry I don't see it. It may have similar features in some things but on the whole it's nothing like WP. It does have a whole bunch of features I would like to see implemented on WP I might add.

    It reminds me more of Symbian and Android over WP.

    Also that graph is rather amusing. To think that Android fans are only 4% less happy with their phones than WP and only 53% of WP are Very Satisfied. That's a very large percentage of just 'satisfied' or 'not satisfied' users (47%) goes to show that WP still has a long way to go.

    It has absolutely nothing in common with Windows Phone. Look hard enough and you'll start finding similarities between Angelina Jolie and Rosie O Donnell. People here are acting as if Microsoft invented thin typography. The truth of the matter is that we're going bat**** insane over leaked pictures of a notification center and weekly view in calendar, something that has been present in competing platforms for years.

    I'm more concerned about the fact that iOS 7 gets the "control center" which is still absent from WP and might still be in the future. Quick access to WIFI, data, etc. switches is a must today (-> at least according to new WP users that came from Android), and now Apple has finally given in. Desperately hope WP 8.1 will get that, too or there won't be as many switchers from other platforms as we might like.
    It's not just Android, even those of us who came over from Symbian find this lack of a 'control center' or 'notification center' rather confusing. The fact that Apple has brought this out before WP is an indication of its importance to users. WP should have had things like this from the beginning.

    I couldn't care less about the UI changes on both IOS and WP at this point all I want is my pureview EOS camera. That is what I call real mindblowing innovation.

    But that camera has been done before, over a year ago in 808 PureView. How will it be innovative now?

    It's just the idea of having the best camera on WP, people seem to forget that Symbian even existed. Also I guess people just want 'one' device for everything. Personally I'm happy with the camera on the 920 for regular use but there are obviously people who feel the EOS is something they require. I personally see this as a bit niche but there seems to be a lot of interest in it.
