The video shows off the new keyboard, the new music player and the new lock screen.
Here are my thoughts on the video :
- For those using multiple languages, switching between the languages is a one touch process, right from the keyboard.
- The prediction looks fast & instantaneous.
- Emoticons are way faster than before too.
- Am a little sceptical at the layout & size of the keys. Looks pretty cramped to me. Hopefully things will be better in the final version.
Music Player –
- The new Now Playing UI is cleaner & should be easier to use.
- There is a button for direct access to the Nokia Music Store in the Nav Bar.
- You can now play & pause the music right from the Notification bar.
You can simply swipe the lockscreen off the screen to unlock the phone. Would be interesting to see how the lockscreen handles message & missed call notifications.
Bear in mind though that this is still a development version and not a final release version.
