    Hmm, I would have to play with it to see if it’s logical laid out, but from that short clip at the very least there seems to be a consistent quality/style to the UI, so it looks promising.

    I find it funny that one the few complaints about WP7 is that there is going to be a lot of swiping everywhere. And while swiping might be more frequent then the amount of tapping in WP7, it’s usually less than the amount of input required in other platforms which rely on buttons/icons to move you all over the place. The larger thing here is that even if the number of swipes was identical to the number of tap input for other platfroms, swiping is no more difficult than tapping, and is arguably easier as your swipe area is the entire screen vs a small icon/button and group of icon/buttons, and most importantly swiping carrier more contextual information in the from of direction spatial movement, which the metro UI enhances and reinforces with the fluid movement between pivots and screens. Again, this goes back to the analogy of walking down a street or hallway and coming to an intersection, where with metro you get to see the swiping motion as you turn, thus giving context to where you are and how to get back, where almost all other platfroms simply jump you around, leaving that navigation disjointed and without context. This is just one of the many design philosophies that make WP7 and metro so much better than everything else out there, and what will give it a constant advantage until the other platforms copy Microsoft or find an even more intuitive UI design (which I find hard to believe given metro’s fundalmental simple design, it very well may be the basic way our spatial minds work).
