Hello DIC community!

Those are not buttons. They are called Live Tiles. They are like a "shortcut" from the "desktop" to your application.

This is a good article changing the Live Tile for your application.

Here is a video of the changes that have been made to the Live Tiles in the upcoming "Mango" WP7 release.

You can use those in your application with both theCoding4Fun Toolkit (ShellTile) and with the Silverlight Toolkit (HubTile).

Here is an example:
