Microsoft shows off new 'I Heart WP' design, makes a sticker for the Focus

Microsoft has made a subtle yet significant change to the famous "I Heart Windows Phone" theme which came out just before Windows Phone was released. Before, the icons were in circles but now...they're boxes, there to represent those iconic tiles on the start screen.

As a way to promote that, they made a handful of stickers that fit on the Samsung Focus, giving it a very custom and kinda kewl look to it. Gimmicky? Sure, but we grabbed one just to make our Focus more hip than yours.

Be jelly, it's okay.

  • And why are you not grabbing a bunch of them an having a contest on here to give them away?!
  • Tried. They had very few.
  • o thats nice i want one also.
  • Very nice that they made it for the best WP7 phone and not so nice that they didnt share! :o)
  • do want!
  • Geez.. I'd buy one! MS should find a way to sell that design for everything! Its like those monitors you see on prime-time TV with the chrome Windows logo on the back of them.. THEY DON'T EXIST! T_T#ImsuchanMSwhore
  • I have been scouring the internet ever since the initial release, on how to get one of the 'i heart Windows Phone' shirt or stickers.....They really should sell that stuff..
  • I actually got a I Love WP7 shirt (old style, with the circles) from Microsoft because I am a I know they have em.
  • Moar Pictures! ...Please :)
  • I want one for my Optimus 7 :D
  • I actually had this idea awhile back and posted it in the backstage forum (of course my idea was just a circle windows phone logo).. I have a vinyl cutter and could easily crank out this design, even in colors.. Everyone on the backstage board said not to and that they wouldn't be interested in it, so I didn't pursue it... Maybe I should re-think it and sell them for like $1.50 each...
  • why is the backing magenta? wouldn't a mango color make more sense?nevertheless, i want one!
