When Microsoft announced that Windows Phone 8 would not be coming to the current generation of Windows Phones they did offer up Windows Phone 7.8 as some small consolation to current owners. While 7.8 doesn’t get any of the headline features of Windows Phone 8 it does get a new start screen.

On the Windows Phone blog Microsoft have posted a video of how the new UI looks. What do you think?

For me, the small-sized tile that made me contentedly sigh “finally…” is my Phone Tile. I don’t do that much talking on my phone and use it pretty much entirely for email, text, web, games and everything else, so it was a big relief to miniaturize it and get it out of the way. On the other hand, I’m pretty jacked to make things like email, messaging and music nice and big so I can see more of what’s going on at a glance.
