Windows 8 UI on Android Tablet [Video]

This is a pretty neat video of not only the Windows Phone 7 lock screen for Android, which is being worked on by the guys at WP7Android, but they have managed to build a Windows 8 live tile look (opens in new tab) too with Desktop Visualizer and ADW EX on a Galaxy tablet, running Honeycomb 3.1. Apart from the stock Android style clock and icons on the bottom left (which I cannot stand personally) what they've managed to achieve with the tiles is really impressive.

  • That's more like a phone put on a tab!!!! That's not a windows 8..the Moto zoom is just not right...
  • The problem is this is only skin deep. Skins are Androids biggest weakness. There is no design theme that runs throughout the Android phones/tablets. That's why Google is trying to get more control of Android.
  • Nothing impressive about copying other people's work.
  • half assed attempt. couldnt even get the colors right.
  • It's funny to see everybody starting to copy Microsoft, not the other way round...
  • that should not be legal to copy the UI that has not even come out yet ..More Dirty pool by google people..
  • even if you put lipstick on a pig it's still a pig.....
  • No offense to the poster but I got to say that looks pretty lame. Actually, it looks and behaves a lot like the crappy android tablets perform now. Looks a lot like some motoblur skin.
  • there is a reason why people buy Rolex, not the fake chinese Rolex. If you want windows 8, buy windows 8 devices. If you want ios, buy an iphone. If you want Android, buy android phones.
