Windows Phone Italy) seemingly changes that, for we're treated to both a tile-happy homescreen and an app drawer, both of which feature a full-blown background wallpaper. In case you're unaware, the latest version of Windows Phone (8.1) only allows for the background to fill the iconic tiles, not take a spot behind them, and the app drawer is not available for customization, either.The desktop strand of Windows 10 is currently in its public beta testing phase, allowing the PC crowd to take a peek at the new changes, but the mobile version has so far remained out of sight for the most part.

Obviously, these images could have been tampered with, so hold your horses for now – we should be hearing more about Windows 10 for mobile devices soon.

Wallpaper? You're easy to please. I'm waiting for Android phones to run full blown Chrome OS when connected to a monitor. And you want wallpapers!

I think Windows might get there first...and that is something I'm definitely looking forward to. From what I can tell, Windows 10 already gets us to that point, it's just going to be a question of whether or not the mobile hardware can adequately run the OS in a docked mode with monitor, keyboard and everything.

YES! Exactly THAT I wanted to see when they announced the wallpaper support on home screen for WP 8.1. THIS! But I am slightly confused. Wasnt Windows 10 on phones supposed to be a whole new experience, like everything wouldnt be all based on Live Tiles anymore and so on? Like, I am betting on my phone and tablet that I read an article here that Windows was searching for a person, who could create a whole new unique UI for the Windows 10.

They never said they were getting rid of tiles. If you look at windows 10, the screen will be adaptive in nature. Tablets will have a tile/desktop switch. It already does but it is not a fast switch and requires a log in/out. And if you look at the windows 10 picture announcement, the phone clearly shows tiles like it has today. What we are waiting for is interactive tiles, and blowout tiles. I also would like a grid based landscape view, where the tiles would 'twist' in place and according to their grouping on which ones would 'switch'.

Again this style? I have read the new Windows is going to look similar to Android OS. The main Menu is a list. I hate it much.

Why would WP look try to look like an OS when that OS has been trying more and more like Windows Phone?. Live Tiles are a major part of WP experience only a fool would dispose of the future of homescreens. Icons are old school.

Because one is just about the absolute top of the food chain while other is I guess, fertilizer at least. Dispose of the future of home screens??? Fact is the world wants one of these, the other is not so much desired.
