Great stuff, very smooth and nice transition effects. BB10 is much more innovative than WP8 and deserves 3rd place.

Are you telling me that 20 years old icons (apple creations) is better than brand new live tile?

live tiles are wrong implementation of widgets Wendy.

the information in live tiles is scattered and difficult to managed, not customizable and incomplete.

and they are distracting too.

I personally think live tile is simple, and informative... However in widget, only clock widget is useful, the rest are very manual and you need to update yourself, live tile update themselves when your data is on... I own android and my friend own lumias and I can tell that...

just sayin...

I've used Live Tiles on my Windows 8 PC for their intended purpose exactly 0 times. They're that frustrating medium between a widget and an icon: they don't show enough information to be an effective widget, and they take up a clumsy amount of space as an icon.

How so? My laptop has a touchscreen, so I'm able to use it as a tablet if I want to. It still doesn't change that the information displayed by the Tiles isn't usually helpful at all.

I like the slide up the screen to wake it up but wonder if it will have problems with being unlocked in pocket?

AUSTRIAN, not AUSTRALIAN.

Jeeze, and you'd think the language used in the video was a dead-giveaway...
