File this under subtle but cool. Windows 10 for phone has a new addition to the keyboard: a precision pointing stick, akin to the famous red nub on Lenovo keyboards.
Positioned on the lower left of the keyboard and in blue (likely the Accent color), the virtual pointing stick has one function: let you navigate with ease and precision on the screen. Yup, instead of the old problem of using your chubby finger to move the caret to edit text, you can optionally use this nub to move it around.
Although not worthy of a full announcement, it is neat additions like this that has us excited for Windows 10 next month on our phones.
