This is WinRumors 2.0.
Less than a month ago we introduced WinRumors Metro to the collection of desktop and mobile sites at WinRumors, today I am pleased to introduce WinRumors 2.0. As promised, the site has undergone a few Metro inspired tweaks here and there. The first of those changes was the launch of a tablet version of WinRumors. Similar to Microsoft’s Windows 8 Start Screen, WinRumors Tablet features tiles of news and a Metro look and feel. The tablet version supports Apple iPad, Android and webOS devices.
The latest changes come to the desktop version of WinRumors that you know and love. We’ve given the site a lick of paint that it deserved and a fresh new look inspired by Microsoft’s Metro design language.
The latest creation is the work of the talented and respected designer and a great friend, Tim Kimberl (@timan25). Tim has created his own vision of Metro based on the various ways that Microsoft has implemented it in Windows Phone 7, Windows 8 and its web properties. I hope you appreciate his amazing design skills and attention to detail.
It has been nearly a year since I launched WinRumors and I’d like to take this opportunity once again to thank my loyal and growing readership for all the support, comments and feedback that you supply on a daily basis. I look forward to the next year ahead as Microsoft ushers in a unified user experience across its core products and the next generation of Windows. I hope to hear from you all in the comments section and the contact form.
