Microsoft tempts with WinPho demo on... iPhone
Try before you fly
Microsoft has pieced together an HTML 5-based demo of its Windows Phone OS' Metro user interface, giving iOS and Android users a taste of what life's like on the other side.
While it isn't exactly a fully functional system, the demo does showcase WinPho's tile-based UI, Metro, throwing out several features including People, Messaging, Outlook, Calendar, Family, Local Scout and Pictures.
