Designer Alexandros Stasinopoulos has created this beautiful smartphone concept to work with Windows Phone 8. The design itself, using strong colours and lines to compliment the interface, stands out from the "standard issue" look found in the iPhone and Android phones, while throwing in standard buttons (such as one for the camera) to easily access functions. See more on his Flickr gallery.
the smartphone market is filled with devices characterized by their black, simplistic forms that in most cases fail to a) communicate their brand b) associate the operating system with their hardware and c) excite the market with elements beyond tech. specs, which for most of the customers mean almost nothing.
microsoft launched its latest version of its operating system, demonstrating a simple yet bold ui design. however, this rather iconic design, when installed in devices from manufacturers such as htc, samsung and even nokia, it loses a great deal of its appeal due to the irrelevant and generic design form language of their phones.
