The Securifi Almond Touch Screen Wireless Router better work great with Windows Phone and Windows 8

There are some who say that the rash of metro-like designs showing up all over the place are simply the natural progression to less chrome and a greater emphasis on content, rather than a direct copy of Windows Phone 7.

I would find this argument hard to believe when it comes to the Securifi Almond Touch Screen Wireless Router.  The $70 router features a 320×480 touch screen which walk users through setting up and maintaining a network all on its own.

The design and icons clearly pay strong homage to Windows Phone Metro, and I think will make the router a shoe-in for consumers after Windows 8 hits the market. Hopefully such products will also feedback into a greater familiarity with the Windows Phone 7 design and also better sales.
