    I stumbled across this blog post with a concept of how a WP7 Tablet home screen could look:

    What if Windows Phone F***ed a Slate? Part 1 Clarity Blogs

    It has a pretty straight forward take on how the UI would work as many WP7 users would come to expect, utilizing a hub style UI for the home screen.

    Nice find! I was wondering how a tablet would look in WP7 and for a concept design this captures it quite well.

    Kinda like this:


    i think MS have got a really great UI concept that would scale well to other screen sizes. Unlike Apple who just add more icons and make them a bit bigger to fill the space a WP7 tablet could just view more of the Panorama/Pivot. It would really be something different to the existing tablets that simply take what is there and make it bigger.

    You could say that, though instead, this designer decided to keep the WP7 start menu the same width and height as the current one, using only 2 columns as a way to keep the OS consistent across devices. Both are still pretty cool concepts, if only Microsoft would jump on this and move into the tablet space with WP7.

    Sigh, Microsoft needs to give up on Windows 7 on a tablet and use WP7 as the base for all mobile efforts (tablets included).

    Why not? Android is being given a facelift to work on tablets, iOS has already been reworked for tablets (iPad) ... so ... Microsoft should really be doing the same thing instead of trying to push a desktop OS (W7) or working on a completely new base (W8 ARM) for future tablets (in 2-3 years when Android and iOS have been developed/improved even more).

    They ought to make a tablet-friendly version of WP7 to use on tablets... giving them that "instant-on" capability people expect of tablets, plus access to the WP7 Marketplace. There's no reason they couldn't add a capability to launch a full desktop program in a Windows7 virtual machine, as needed, for those power users. I think we will see good things from Microsoft in terms of tablets as they're already announced the next version of Windows will run on ARM and system on a chip architectures.
