Microsoft must love their WP7 homescreen – filing trademarks

• 20/02/2011

Microsoft is pulling a little vanity for themselves by filing to get the Homescreen from Windows Phone 7 trademarked. Yes…trademarked.

I actually am curious to see how they describe this trademark to prevent others from copying this look. I mean, Apple’s iOS has icons that sit on a black background, so does Android…and several other mobile OSs. Oh wait…I know…Windows Phone 7 uses “Tiles” , not icons. In that case, it’s a safe move…I’m really not a sarcastic person.
