Test the new WP7 experience on your smartphone
| by Karan Shah |
Interested in trying out the Windows Phone OS, but not too sure if it matches your liking? Well, Microsoft’s new demo will help you view a few of the offerings of their Windows Phone user interface, right from your Android or Safari browser.
Other than the Android notification icons, it's a pretty convincing effect
As reported by WMPowerUser, what Microsoft has done is that they’ve created a small demo site, which you can view from your mobile phone’s browser to briefly see how the metro interface of the phone looks and feels on your mobile screen. It’s definitely an interesting way to promote Windows Phone Mango, because this way you can have a nice hands-on of the interface without actually buying the phone, and check to see if it’s something you’ll like.
Won't work if you have a BB, though
The interface works quite well on the stock iOS and Android browsers, currently, but unfortunately, it didn’t work on our BlackBerry phone. We’ve got a brief hands-on of it on the Apple iPhone 4 and the Sony Ericsson Neo V in the Tech2 labs.
WP7 on Android and iOS
Users can visit http://aka.ms/wpdemo to check out the Windows Phone interface on their phone. If you’ve already tried it out, let us know what you feel about their metro UI.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
