The same crew at NokiaGang who brought the earlier video OIS test with the Lumia 920 have a short video showing off the matte-black version. The video itself doesn't reveal too much, though we have seen less of the all-black variation of the 920 since Nokia seems to focus on yellow for most product shots.
Interestingly, the handler does get the privilege of magically swiping to the right to see the programs list. Shocker, it's the same as Windows Phone 7 though we do quickly see a Transfer my Data app in that list. The program is never launched and we're unsure if this is part of the cloud-backup solution for saving app data that we showed in the SDK video or if this is a Nokia app to further augment that service (e.g. from any other smartphone).
The video at least gives you a nice visual "feel" for the device including size (the bottom does look thick) and a quick comparison to a Lumia 900.
We also noticed that Nokia Drive is now called Nokia Drive+ instead. That name change may have an easy explanation: Since all Windows Phone 8 devices have access to turn-by-turn navigation powered by Nokia Maps, it would seem Nokia would go beyond that for its users by offering Nokia Drive Plus.

Of course what that actually means in terms of new functions versus standard Windows Phone 8-Nokia powered mapping, is unclear. But our guess is if Nokia is "giving up" something for the platform, they will make up for it in other ways e.g. merging Nokia Transit (renamed Transport) and augmented reality features.
We know from New York that Windows Phone 8 will include indoor mapping and there are plenty of opportunities for Nokia there as well and that Nokia Maps will get augmented reality as well.
