Windows Phone 8 to feature live wallpaper updates on lock screen?

Microsoft could incorporate a new kind of live wallpaper when it reveals the Windows Phone 8 operating system in full next week.

The as-yet-unannounced Live Wallpapers feature would, according to a leaked snap, bring updates from the likes of ESPN and USA today to the handset’s lock screen.

The Nokia Innovation site has posted an image (see above) with WP8 handsets showcasing updates from an NFL game and another showing thumbnail images from news stories.

Live Tile extension

The functionality would be a handy extension of the Live Tiles feature Microsoft pioneered with Windows Phone.

These tiles offer access to sports scores, breaking news and social networking notifications autonomously, without having to enter the app. Live Wallpapers could make that even easier.

Nokia Innovation is reporting that Live Wallpapers will be one of three new features explained by Microsoft on Monday when it reveals Windows Phone 8 in full.

Among the handsets flying the flag for the new-and-improved mobile OS are the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X, both of which will go on sale in the second week of November
