Something rather interesting was uncovered today regarding the potential design of Windows 10 for phones. As it turns out, we may see a new tile size that’s vertical and double stacked.
This possibly new tile looks identical to a double-wide tile but in a vertical position and the clue comes from a photo which shows a Windows Phone showcasing using the tile which belongs to a Microsoft employee by the name of Vesku Paananen who tweeted it and then quickly removed the tweet.
It wouldn’t be surprising for Microsoft to add this feature, being a logical evolution of the Windows Phone design language that would be particularly useful in larger screen devices.
A vertical tile could be very useful if it enabled up and down scrolling of information within an app, which would work great with Twitter. It certainly doesn’t look like it enables any new features judging by the photo which just shows the people hub tile in the vertical position, but seeing previous footage of Microsoft experimenting on scrolling within live tiles makes us wonder if this is a sign of things to come. For now it’s just wishful thinking. We’ll know soon enough with the release of Windows 10 for phones.
