Earlier this week, 7955 build of Windows 8 was publicly leaked. As expected, new details have started emerging. This new video shows the usability of Windows 8 on touch screen enabled devices such as tablets. This video leaked by @robyroby27 demonstrates Microsoft’s new immersive user experience based around Metro UI which will power prospective ARM-based tablets.
Icons and controls have been sized up to enable smooth finger tap controls without accidentally tapping in the wrong area of the screen. It would be wrong to comment on the UI based on YouTube video, but it seems like the screen resolution is small and perhaps that’s why the reason why scrollbar appears to see more panels. Nevertheless, the Metro UI looks fabulous, and people are expecting nothing but the best from Microsoft’s immersive user experience.
Microsoft is also reported to be working on a new API codenamed ‘Jupiter’ which will allow developers to use Silverlight and create application packaged in .appx extension. The applications will be a part of Windows 8 through an app store. We’ll keep our fingers crossed till Windows Developers Conference in September this year.
