Live wallpapers revealed for Windows Phone 8: Facebook, ESPN, USA Today and Bing

Microsoft has announce a new lockscreen that incorporates live tile information.  We have mentioned live lockscreen wallpapers before, specifically when the Windows Phone 8 SDK leaked over the summertime (and we told you about them even before then). The feature is not quite as “live” as Android where things are actually moving around, wasting your battery. Instead, this is truly useful.

The image above, received by the site Nokia Innovation, shows three examples of this Live locksreen wallpaper: Bing, ESPN and USA Today. Microsoft is also partnering with Facebook to bring Facebook information to the new live lockscreen.  Bing will refresh the lockscreen every day with Bing’s latest background, ESPN can show you sports scores presumably of your favorite team and USA Today highlights news via tile images.
