Windows Phone 8’s lock screen to Sport more notifications

Nokia logoOne of the appealing features that Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system has been launched with was the presence of app notifications on the lock screen. There, users could quickly make an idea of whether they had missed calls, unread emails or SMS messages, and the like.

With Windows Phone 8, Microsoft might have enhanced the feature a bit, with more such notifications being displayed on the lock screen.

Although details haven’t been provided, official press photos with Lumia 920 showed five notification icons on the phone’s lock screen, one of which is a Windows Phone logo, WMPoweruser found out.

There is also a notification icon for Skype, which is said to be integrated in WP8, present on said screen along with two email and one news icons.

Rumor has it that Microsoft might have packed the new OS with some sort of a Notification Center, so as to keep users better informed on what’s happening in areas they are interested in.
