Windows Phone UK blog receives a Metro makeover

Microsoft seem to be going Metro and design crazy as of late (about time too) with the recent Windows Phone website revamp (opens in new tab) and the YouTube channel improvement (opens in new tab). Now the Windows Phone UK (My Kind of Phone) blog has received a beautiful makeover that further enhances the user experience.

Can we ever have enough Metro? We think not!

  • It should be this way with any Windows Phone related websites, they should all share the same Metro design theme.
  • This design is really pretty poor. I know they want it to look metroish and stuff, but...They don't properly specify a font that will work in all browsers. In IE9 it just shows a default sans serif font, looks silly.No visible text for the tiles. Must hover to see identifying information == no workie on phones.(badly) Dimmed tiles. When does WP7 do this?On phone browser, page is twice the width of the browser frame, making it difficult to navigate. Fonts are also small in comparison.I love metro being incorporated in MS' sites, but they need to figure out a way to do it *consistently* and sanely.
