It is only the beginning, Google Now!, lockscreen widgets, Miracast, Android is going places. Next stop - and gimme thumbs up if you agree - a fullHD Google Nexus phab.

Anybody else think this whole lock screen just looks bad?
I mean I love android, the way they've designed all of thus doesn't seem the nicest

I agree with you, I know that Google wants to be innovative, but this is just wrong, privacy is neglected here.

Agree.. one of the reason to lock screen is protect privacy!

Depends on the widgets tho, some can be useful like the clock or some other stuff

Cool but hardly new. Several Android overlays have been doing this for a while now, including HTC Sense and WidgetLocker.

From someone who's always on the go, I think this kind of overcomplicates things...

isn't this just a homescreen without the shortcut for the app drawer?

They'll remove this feature eventually, not useful nor practical at all. I don't want people to read my e-mails, that's why I lock my cell phone, to avoid people from seeing my personal information. Displaying such information in the lockscreen overrides privacy measures.

Didn't the video explain that if you have a password that you will have to put that code in before you can view the widget? Also you don't have to use this feature if you don't want to. I see no reason why this feature would ever be removed

IMO, apps that contain private information like messaging and e-mail should not be displayed like this.
It would be very different if only the apps like clock, calendar (without the tasks displayed, just the calendar for quick reference of the dates), music (although is personal is not going to harm you in any way if somebody take a look at your phone), calculator or other task-oriented apps were displayed in the lockscreen.
I just dislike the idea of that lockscreen feature and trying to share my concern for privacy issues.

yet it prevents anyone to access the e-mail body message, you can still see the headings. just saying...
Anyhow, depends on whether the user wants to use this feature or not.

I like the implementation the most as being able to do things quickly is always a plus. Great job.

For who did not like the widget lock screen.
Easy just dont use it. And stop complaining.
Some people love it and hate it or simply don't care
Thats why google always give you choice

google adds yet another layer on top of the other 2.
Sorry but android is seriously flawed when compared to WP8.
