Windows Phone Concept: Microsoft Tac/Tile

Advertisement

There are occasionally rumors going around that Microsoft might build its own Windows Phone kind of like they did with their new Surface tablets and of course the Zune media players.  So with that idea in mind, an industrial designer from Cincinnati, OH, named Michael Matteo decided to design some of his own concept artwork simply as a design exploration.  These are not sanctioned by Microsoft.  These are just renderings made by someone who likes Windows Phone and wants to show off his design skills.  That said, we always like to see innovative smartphone designs, and these designs from Matteo are kind of interesting.  Take a look at some of his concept art below and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.  Note what looks like a proprietary port, a metallic backing with an interesting ridges pattern, and rubberized edges with raised buttons.
