    There probably is only one or two major features they haven't shown. The rest will probably be the small, unique features (my favorites)

    The os seemed very fluid and the portrait mode is amazing. I love that the bezel gestures rotate their function with the screen rotation. Did anyone else notice some choopyness in the 7 digital music store? This might be due to it being so new...

    Did they modify slightly the left/right bezel gesture? Maybe I'm wrong but previously, I think the gesture would zoom out the app window and then you would swipe left/right to switch to another app. Now, the bezel gesture itself switches the apps.

    By the way, funny this thread's mood is so different from the other (whinny) thread.

    The PB is still looking great! Bring it on, so I can "kick the tires" to see if I REALLY want one.

    I'm gonna run up, tap the tire with my pinky then say "get me one, and get me one while I'm waiting"

    I think it was choppy due to the fact it was accessing data via a 3G wifi hotspot (iphone or android) in a sketchy coverage area.

    Camera, clock, calculator, and browser icons have changed as well for the better. Really like the new clock one in particular. Looks like a watch face. Referenced BGR hands on.

    ya missed Appworld being installed and bing

    the battery icon looks the same to me, but the wifi and battery have been `switched`. plus theres a new icon by the side of the bluretooth, and is that a notification in the top left? first iv seenn of it.

    also the `side swipe` multitasking seems to work same as b4

    if anyone wants to compare, heres a vid i shot yesterday, but its the MWC build (i show all the options screens)

    to be fair i spotted the blue highlight and stuff as well lol, but didnt notice BlackBerry Bridge now.

    Nice vid. I noticed a "Calendar" icon. Was I seeing things? Does this imply a native calendar on the PB?

    haha ya dont rememeber the vid tho, was shot yesterday by me

    the calendar icon is under the bridge section so i dont think is `native` as such (didnt work as no bridged BB available)
