Main features

  • Edge magic: thumb gestures from all four edges of the screen that enable users to find content and switch between apps faster than they can on other phones.
  • Focus on content, not the controls: immerses the user in their content. Controls only appear when they want them.
  • Integrated search: search for anything that’s saved on the phone, any content from online providers like Amazon and even menu functions within applications.
  • HTML5 apps, web apps and native apps are equal citizens – they all get their own icons and access to system services, so the user need never know the difference.
  • Personalised welcome screen: a visualisation of an individual’s social interactions (infographics on calls, SMS, Twitter) – ever changing, totally personal.
