RumorTT: Windows Phone 8 could give you the ability to have live wallpaper as your lock screen

I really love my live wallpaper on my Android devices, and it is something I miss on iOS devices. Rumors are now forming that the upcoming Windows Phone 8 from Microsoft could support something very nice: live wallpaper for your lock screen.

Nokia Innovation has posted an image of what they're describing as a Live Wallpaper feature for Windows Phone 8. The image shows wallpapers that automatically update with live information from first- and third-party apps for WP8's lock screen.

 

It looks as though Bing, ESPN and USA Today all support the feature, with up-to-date news from USA Today splashing up on the lock screen. There's no detail on how this would work on WP8, but the Redmond-based software giant are holding an event in San Francisco on Monday where we should hear about all the new juicy Windows Phone 8 features.
