Microsoft introduces Montage, A Web App where you can have a Magazine layout on a particular topic. It gives a look of a Tablet App. When you go to the Montage pageyou are asked to pick a keyword, then the application pulls the data from variety of media-rich and real-time sources including YouTube, twitter and Bing News.
I entered “Windows Phone 7” as the keyword and got the content arranged in grid layout, you can change the layout in the way you want as shown in the image below.
Each news is shown as a “widget” on the page, which can be customized with the easy to use editor.
Buttons on the top right of the screen allow you to save/publish your work.
Once you click on Save/Publish , you will be asked to create your account using either Windows Live, Facebook or Twitter.
After you Sign in using any of the above services, you can share the montage page on Facebook and Twitter as shown in the image below.
