It seems with every post we publish here surrounding Metro UI on Android we're getting closer and closer to a fluent solution. It was only a few days ago when we covered the latest attempt to get the look of Windows Phone on an Android powered device. In the video above Arjoma92 walks us through his Motorola Defy that appears to resemble Microsoft's Windows Phone in more ways than one. The list of apps used are as follows:
- Lockscreen: WP7 Lock
- Homescreen: Launcher7
- Music Player: UberMusic
- Contacts: WP7 Contacts
- Keyboard: HTC ImeMod (additional Keyboard sounds)
While it looks relatively accurate, the smooth scrolling and snappy OS is not present, plus you can still see Android elements throughout the video, but it's a damn good attempt.
