Windows Phone Dictionary App Icon Raises Eyebrows

Ever pondered the intricacies of crafting a dictionary icon? Given their uniform appearance, why bother inventing a fresh icon for a Windows Phone app? It seems more practical to adopt a well-accepted design.

Indeed, as Craig Hockenberry highlighted today, the Windows Phone Featured Apps page features a Dictionary app icon that is an exact replica of the Mac OS X Dictionary icon, seemingly for a third-party app, not one published by Microsoft.

Remember the phrase “Redmond, start your photocopiers” from WWDC 2006? For such an amusing oversight (likely not approved by Microsoft), it certainly earns a No Comment accolade.
