The video below is an example of Windows Phone lock screens that displays current weather while at the same time being able to show us a looped video of what a “Mostly Sunny” day would appear to be.

We propose today that “LOCK SCENES” be made available in the next version of Windows Phone if its not already in the works. Take a look below:
