    Hi everyone. I am about to make the plunge to wp8 from android. I am using launcher7 on android and love the interface. It is a windows phone look alike. Does the real thing have live mail tiles that flip with a preview of the new message when you get new mail? Thanks.

    It should show you a preview of the message if you use the double wide tile

    By double wide I assume the banner type horizontal not the medium square? As far as I know there is the smallest square which is a quarter of the regular medium square. Then there is the long banner type. Thanks again.

    Yes, the long banner type, the largest tile.

    You can also have the first portion of the email text displayed at the bottom of your lock screen.

    I don't use this feature as there's the potential for people to read your emails from a distance if they can see the phone's screen. I just use tile counters to show me how many unread emails I have.
