I don't believe that to be accurate. It's more an implementation of design philosophy that originated in the early 20th century in the U.S. and from Bauhaus at Dessau. If you look up Bauhaus and click on images you'll see some similarities. Design is supposed to be simple but functional. The famous "form follows function" that we have been using in architecture and industrial design for nearly a hundred years, yet the designing of buildings and furniture has been around for thousands of years, is starting to take hold of tech design. Technology design, namely software, is relatively new so we haven't had as much practice. This isn't Android trying to rip someone off, it's simply a company that has started to care more about the user experience as it deals with design.

In my opinion Windows Mobile UI falls short of good design while Android and IOS are nearly there.

Hope this cleared some things up.

Windows phone and windows 8 are based on the designs of Massimo Vignelli, a painter of the 50's. He utilizes a simple but bold visual design similar to what you've referred to. Even though google and apple have adopted similar designs, windows(Microsoft) has been implementing those designs ahead of time. Google being the latter.

Bauhaus 1915-1933 : Android 2013-Current

Massimo Vignelli 1931-2014 : Windows Mobile 2010-Current

EDIT: This is how I see it at least. Some may even claim that Vignelli may have been influenced by the teachings(design philosophies) of Walter Gropius who was one of the founder of Bauhaus. Design is something that should be encouraged. Honestly, there will always be similarities since there is only so much that can be functional in smartphone OS's. Anyway have a good day man.

Good day to you too. That's right, only way to innovate these days is to take something and make it better. Take it easy, dude

Do you know in my country, what's the time now? It's 12:07am 06/27/2014. Yes, 06/27. And I think now is 01:07pm 06/26/2014 in New York!

Google I/O is in San Fransisco, not New York, which is another 3 hours "behind in time" compared with New York
