Microsoft To Bring Metro UI On Hotmail or “Newmail”

Not that anyone cares or uses Hotmail, but it seems like Microsoft is bringing the Metro-style UI to its web based email service — Hotmail. Liveside has got hold of screenshots of the new Hotmail or “Newmail”, as Microsoft is likely to call it, with Metro UI.

Take a look:

What’s interesting is that Microsoft is unifying the Metro-style UI across all of its services. This is one thing I absolutely dislike about Google. Just take a look at their Gtalk on web across various platforms. The UI differs from within Gmail and Google Plus. The Metro UI also indicates that Microsoft is preparing its services for touch friendly tablets that might soon enter the market with Windows 8 release.
