Latest Windows 10 for phones leak shows off transparent slider for Live Tiles, new Office apps

A new Windows 10 for phones build is expected to launch sometime this week, and it looks like folks in China have already gotten their hands on build number 10072. The leaked screenshots show that the new version comes with a transparency slider for Live Tiles, a feature that was revealed to be in the works earlier this year.

According to the leak, build 10072 — officially titled 10.0.12555.74 — will allow users to download preview versions of universal Office apps such as Word Preview and PowerPoint Preview. Another new addition in the build is the number of solid colors available for choosing, which went up from 21 to 48.

  • Its all good
  • I LOVE IT!!!!!! MICROSOFT HURRY UP I WANT TO HAVE IT ON MY PRIMARY PHONE ALREADY
  • Well my req. To insider users .! Plz do put up on feedback to have a translucent action center with glass tint effect of accent color .!! :)
  • while it sounds nice, that'll make it too much like the iPhone. also, too much transparency (the action centre works system-wide) will spoil the new design's overall look and feel.
  • Well it will give somewhta like dat feel but the current one is totally basic .!! Atleast there is need of beauty with functionality and W10 for desktop like it got aero glass back from win7 it will definitely suit the W10 for phones too that's m sayin it will look pretty cool ;)
  • This^^ The current one really looks spartan.
  • I know but remember that aero effect in win 7 that didn't look like iOS because it had tint? Exactly it should have a accent colour fruit tint.
  • You have a choice.
  • Well, why wouldn't you suggest they make it optional, and let people decide for themselves if they like it❓❓❓❓❓❓
  • Well gee, if you don't like transparancy then set the slider to 0. Simple.
  • What is wrong with it looking like the iphone. If something looks great it can be used regardless of if it is in android or ios.  
  • Exactly.
  • Even though it would look a lot like iOS 7, it does sound really cool.
  • Seeing how a lot people like the UI of an iPhone I don't see the problem... but options are best
  • Aero for Phones?  
  • AGREED!! I love it too!
  • The narrow gap makes picture looks more complete, natural and smoother.  With the transparency slider and more color choices, it opens up all kinds of possibilities to customize the screen design.  It is super nice.
  • I love it too but unless they produce at least a 5.7 inch metal super phone with this on it I am not moving.  It is the only thing stopping me.
  • In the previous leak there were a lot of blue tones for tiles color choice now there are lot of grey. I wonder which one is fake, why would they give so many grey tones? 
  • I don't have my pantone chart handy, but those look like the same colors in the latest desktop build. I think you're just seeing the process.  The last dektop build had a lot more blue tones.
  • Because 50 shades of grey?
  • The reduced space between tiles and the extra large icons of the tiles is making it ugly. The spacing between the tiles and the icon size of the tile is perfect in the Present WP8.1.
  • Well its looking weird bec. Its 2column setup of screen when you will use 3 column it will look good ;) like wp8.1
  • I think people forget that you don't have to cover your whole screen with tile especially not that there is a background.
  • I found a setup I like. I set up my tiles in two column, and then switched to three column mode. The tiles now only occupy the left two columns and the right third of the background picture is completely visible. With the tiles all being a bit smaller in three column than two, I also get a bit more on the screen. It looks very different form many other start screens, and I like it. I'm the only one who has to ;)
  • Agreed! Now that we have the full background option, there should be more spacing between the tiles. App categories like in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 would also help with spacing.
  • There are probably setting choices for gap spacing.  I personally like narrow gaps which makes picture look nicer.  I even saw a gapless screen in the Gallery shown on Neowin site.  It looks great.  WP is often critisized for being square-ish and dull.  The gapless screen will silent those compalins. http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-for-phones-build-10072-images-leak-show-office-apps-and-transparency-options
  • If they go through with this, Windows phones will probably be heralded as the most flexible UI wise. Ideally, I want 3 sliders: one for transparency, one for aero effect, and one for tile spacing.
  • Waiting for the new tile animations in WP.
  • Yeah! Me too... I hope they consider doing the same on W10 for phones, they look awesome!
  • It Is, but I would like to be able to see the ability to change the font color of the tiles.  
  • I'm just hoping office apps will be available in the next build. 
  • The only confirmed that they would be there. Where have you been? And nobody is going to say that the 8.1 setting theme for wallpaper is back.
  • Nice I like it
  • Same
  • I'm actually liking the new tile layout. Especially how the wallpaper looks on the tile-only setting.
  • Yup same here
  • Release it ASAP... Current version not great as daily driver. Hope this new one is good enough.
  • It's not supposed to be your daily driver, when are you ever going to understand that??
  • He may not mean it that way. He may simply be saying its bit stable enough. He'll know its stable enough if he can use it as a daily driver. Maybe he'd rather test the factory model car as opposed to the concept car
  • He didn't day that he expected the current one to be his daily driver... He's just saying that he wants one that is good enough..... Who doesn't❓❓❓❓
  • Its annoying that people dont know this. It was not advised to use this as a daily driver
  • There's nothing wrong with using it as your daily driver, as long as you are willing to take the risks that are associated with knowing this is bug-prone software.  It's annoying people don't know that.
  • I think uber will good for daily driver isn't it?
  • of course it's not advise on the daily driver phone, but he knows that he does that anyway. I do it, too soon as I'm speaking to you I'm using windows 10.
  • Of course it wasn't advised to use as your daily driver. It's not stable, that doesn't mean that people don't. You just have to be willing to take the risks and smart enough to work through bugs. I've been using 10051/10052 from the first day it was released for the 1020. Haven't looked back since and it's my only phone. Just because it isn't advised doesn't mean that I can't and won't. Because I will do whatever I want with my phone!
  • Following by what you said nobody should be testing WP10. So get your facts straight: best testers are those living on the edge: WP10 as a daily driver. Thank you.
  • Living on the edge myself using it on my primary phone
  • I applaud you guys using it as your daily device. You are the ones providing real use and bug telemetry back to MS. Some of us just pick it up and play for a half hour a day looking for something to complain about ;)
  • I'm going to try this on my primary phone (Lumia 1020) too. It's risky, but the Office Apps are really tempting.
  • I'm holding on a little bit. After that lags on 520 is minimized and Office apps is available, I think I'll try it again. The current build was lag heavily on 520. Oh ... And drain to much power too.
  • The inclusion of office apps is what will make me make the switch on my 1020.  I am not will to go without them at this point.  If rumors are true and office will be on the next build, I will be downloading.
  • Yes. There are some pitfalls, but I've been limping along on my daily driver. Not having custom sounds for text and Cortana is kinda broken. Also, attachments tend to reboot my phone. Mail is stupid in its current iteration. I can go back if I wanted to, but I don't. Bring on the next version!
  • Gawd I hate the mail app so far. Biggest issue is the inability to pin individual accounts to Start. I have different accounts for various reasons, and don't need them all stuck in the same interface with one tile that says I have 15 new mails, but no clue as to what accounts they are in. There are some I need t react to, and some can linger. Current app makes that triage a chore.
  • Some people have only one did u think of that? And yes some people are really excited and want to use it as their main....
  • The English in this conversation is garbage.
  • Well, better feedback comes from those who really use It as It is, a daily driver. No worries', i know what am doing but thanks for the friendly reminder.
  • Life does exist outside beta releases. :)
  • Nice. I wonder what else is new and what's been fixed. I'll just update my 635 instead of my 925.
  • Office preview apps is what in waiting for. Then I may install Windows 10 in my phone
  • OK
  • I'm chomping at the bit for Office support again...
  • champing*
  • Both are acceptable.  See: http://grammarist.com/usage/champing-chomping-at-the-bit/
  • Perhaps, but champing refers to noisily chewing which i think is distinctive enough to make a difference. ^__^
  • Chopping.
  • With all the complaining about the UI, I actually think they aren't making enough changes. The desktop is starting to make the phone feel dated. Hopefully when the desktop is done the team shifts focus to phone and makes it feel as modern as the desktop.
  • Agreed.
  • I definitely agree, but that also seems to be the point. Desktop first, phone later. Especially since it's already been confirmed the public build of Windows 10 for phones could come out weeks if not months after Windows 10 for desktops. So yes, Windows for phone is definitely lacking in terms of UI and performance right now, but it's also very intentionally behind the desktop version. I'm sure it'll be well caught up once by the time it's officially released, after the desktop version is out and they devote more resources to phone.
  • Indeed, the desktop looks much more slick and polished but Im guessing it's because work on desktop started before phone as well as the fact that it's coming out sooner, so it makes sense that desktop feels and looks better.
    ---------
    That said, since desktop is starting to go into its final phase, it should be easier for the phone division to apply some of the design language from desktop to phone. In some areas the phone design/layout feels like a 1990's website but other aspects are definitely a nice improvement.
    -------
    Lets not forget when the first build for desktop came out, it was equally unpolished and buggy in many areas (although more usable), so Im certain from this point onwards, the builds we receive on phone, should start to look and feel better.
  • The Phone builds definitely are lagging behind the desktop builds in most regards. Let's hope for parity in the final releases.
  • Please not. The 3d tiles are ugly as hell
  • I beg to differ...
  • Then 4D?
  • I wouldn't say ugly, but the 2D flip is definitely way better. Besides, Metro (aka Modern) design principles taught us to stay away from 3D stuff like gradient, drop shadow etc. This is in stark contrast to those principles.
  • Versions we are seeing in the insider program are apparently a long way off the current production versions. I get the feeling that insider is a way for the devs to 'pressure test' software configurations and they are holding back alot of the major UI changes
  • The space between the tiles seems smaller.
  • And faster!!
  • That it is, it seems the tiles have all been scaled up ever so slightly. I'm not sure how I feel about it.
  • I personally like it.
  • No, the gaps are smaller *and* the tiles are smaller. There are now 8 columns instead of 6, but the tiles didn't have to shrink by the same proportion because of the cut in the gutter sizes. The tiles also go closer to the screen edge than before.
  • So is parallax scrolling officially dead?
  • I thought parallax scrolling was supposed to return. The new start screen does not look nearly as good. It's a serious downgrade.
  • That option is also there buddy
  • I like the new options, with the image set behind the tiles, way better than the old parallax scrolling option.  But to each their own.
  • Background options > -None (obvious, WP8 style) -Tile (parralax, WP8.1 style) - Full (Window 10's new).
  • Yes, and Iove it❗ less gaps look less busy.
  • Looks good to be able to choose the range.
  • I still don't like the new tile spacing.
  • It's good for tile transparency, but yeah, it might take a while to get used to it.
    Would be awesome if you can adjust the opacity of the gutter as well! Could make sense even you're using the black background.
  • I love the spacing but to each his own
  • No problem. Would be cool if you could adjust the spacing as well.
  • I love it.... It's less cluttered, and that's something WP could use...
  • I really need more colors..........
  • Well you get what you want, as you can see above
  • True :)
  • +930 =D
  • But accent colours page is better in Wp8.1 with larger colour tiles..... But its looking ugly with tons of colours arranged conjustedly
  • Seriously?? Damned if they do, damned if they don't.
  • Right?? Like what the hell are they supposed to do? Make a new page for every colour? OMG THESE PEOPLE!
  • No kidding. Those are the blandest colors they could've picked. Nothing bright or eye catching. Where's the cobalt from 8.0 or even cyan? MS used to be great at this stuff.
  • You do realize you can use a solid color background wallpaper right...?
  • Yes but what's wrong in having those by default inside the phone!
  • That sure went over your head. I'm talking about accent colors which are used system wide. Also creating a solid color background doesn't work well since the OS automatically dims them. There's no way to get bright colors.
  • Looks great..
  • How do y'all know this build is supposedly coming this week???
  • We just feel it in the air
  • Can u also feel my bewilderment towards ur response?
  • No. That would be just weird. Pretty much what rodneyej said.
  • Because Gabe said it was coming before the end of April, and we missed that date.. Then, at Build they said it would be very soon.... IOW Daniel got the inside scoop, but he's just playing it safe by saying sometime this week..... This is exactly what happened when the 2nd build came out.
  • All of this is available in the emulator build, I played with it. There is video posted at winbeta.
  • Not a fan of how big the tiles are, but if Microsoft is really trying to kill all the white space it looks like a step in the right direction...
  • Weren't there pictures of the even smaller tiles ("4th column") floating somewhere on the web?
  • Problem is, these pictures are only showing off 2 columns, which means they are making the tiles freakin massive...
  • Pretty much. It seems like they made 2 column mode look more like 3 column mode in terms of the side margins. Don't really care for it.
    The scale of the icons are still all over the place.
  • New colors, Transparency slider & option to revert to 8.1 wallpaper style ... What's not to like!!!
  • New colors, Transparency slider & option to revert to 8.1 wallpaper style ... What's not to like!!!
  • I definitely agree, but the new tile size (which in turn makes the gap in between tiles smaller) is interesting, to say the least. I won't outright say it's bad without giving it a chance first, but yeah... I could see a big backlash over that.
  • Yea its gonna take some time to get to used to it. The backlash is inevitable ... Just like when they removed the gutter going from 7 to 8, or the 3-Columns in GDR3 or the backgrounds in 8.1 ... It will grow on people eventually.
  • @IceDree, yup. Most are fickle by nature, if people start complaining about the tile spacing... Then they have just toooooo much time on their hands. Which would best used doing something more productive.
  • Yep
  • Absolutely! It seems they're not overdoing it :)
  • Yep, the more options the better
  • Everything else.
  • Okay
  • I actually miss the color coded tiles for easier navigation, I would like to see the tile images smaller and colored.
  • Indeed. All developers should make it optional via toggle in settings, I feel.
  • Ugly. This is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. Ugliness level: over 9999999999999. Someone tell me where the design department of microsoft is at, it needs to be bombed ASAP, if there is any that is. 
  • Picture is absolute shit to show the second transparency effect, but the option to choose from those 3 methods is huge and opens so much possibility for personalization. How can somebody not like that? 
  • This^^
  • +630
  • There's a thing they call user voice, its pretty much based upon your reviews. Make yourself useful and help them out by reviewing / suggesting such stuff to them for a change from criticizing something in the works that's nothing more than an alpha or more simply, a work in progess.
  • +10
  • Good advice. It was because of user voice complaints that they removed the top left hamburger menus and changed the toggles... Oh wait, they didn't. Fail.
  • Thanks for your suggestion, but I have already done that. This simply is not good. A designer must be capable of producing something good on their own. If you come to base all your work on the suggestions of your users, where is your creativity at? Even if they did, I would be more than happy, but they are not. This is not how this works, this is not how any of this work. I am a WP user for 5 years now, and I can clearly conclude there's not much to be expected from the design department of the OS. The lack of apps were never really a problem for me. OS never really evolved, the start screen and UI is basically the same with the one on 7.x. Solid background, typography based UI, and big black unused spaces(*looking at you All apps list"). As a matter of fact, back then (7.x era) apps had their own identity, which is nowdays sacrificed for a more "useful" "cross-platform style" hamburger menu.  I do not know whose was the idea of removing the Start Menu, and introducing a Metro language desing to the PC but that was stupid, and everyone knows that. Hence, everyone is now happy for its return with Windows 10. I was expecting something new with Windows 10 for phones. Background behind tiles is not new people. It is for phones but it's not new in Windows. If anything that "background image" option should have been available to users since the release of WP8. I want refinement of the Metro UI. Like what Apple did with iOS7. Heck, even Google has evolved with their material design. And to be honest it looks pretty slick. And come to think they did all this without that thing called "User Voice"... amazing huh??
  • What you want (and I want) is not the direction MS is going in unfortunately. It's all about features and uninspiring design.
  • @altinselimi, Well for luddites err People like you :P. You have a choice between the parallax effect or a full background with opaque tiles.
  • try harder. are you attempting to troll a 3 year old? ha!
  • Your crazy windows 10 even at this early stage is alot more beautifull then WP 8.1 ever will be.
  • I love using WP10, but it is no where near as nice looking as WP8.1. Not even close. 10 is an ugly OS, just has a lot of great features.
  • This is preview, what the hell do you expect. Lets finish the UI before we do anything else?
  • i would like to see grouping of apps to de-clutter the startscreen! as in windows for desktops...
  • You mean like.. folders?  http://www.windowscentral.com/how-to-create-live-folders-windows-phone
  • I would like to see Live Folders come to the desktop too.
  • In fairness, Apps groups on phone and Live Folders on desktop would be most appreciated. After all, Windows 10 is about unifying the OS experience across all devices, so why should the behavior of app organization differ on them? I think it'd be nice to see phone features migrate to the desktop, and vice-versa. And they're already doing it in other regards, so it'd be nice to have different personalization and organization options.
  • exactly.
  • if you could permanently keep those folders open that would be about the same as the grouping option in windows 10 for desktops. and that would exactly what i was looking for. i just want to have some space between tiles. so far its just a huge list of tiles. i want to see other ways to ogranize tiles. e.g. freely organzie tiles on the grid with lines without any tiles.
  • To make it more clear what i want. e.g. I would like to organize tiles like this: X X X X
                    <- empty line/space here!
    X X X X
    X X X X
          
    this is not possible at the moment.
  • Ooohh! Looks fantabulous!
  • I'm not sure I like the tiles so close together... It makes it feel more like a table, instead of individual tiles...
  • It is a little tighter, but not too bad. There was a photo leaked, probably a fake, that showed almost no space between tiles. I didn't like that.
  • Less gap in between two tiles...
  • Probably tile spacing dlider
  • Any rumors on when non-Lumia phones will be supported?
  • They are working on it
  • Keep quite or join Lumia =D
  • Lol. You need to learn the difference between quite and quiet, before asking someone to be quiet on a forum.
  • The slider is nice as it allows you to get the perfect balance for every image. I just wonder if apps will be able to adjust it too so you can have it set automatically too. Give us the new build already, and make it available for L930 too
  • Looks pretty good actually, although all I want is the option to have just a solid color with no wallpaper so if that's there I'll be happy.
  • Its been there dont worry bout that one.
  • You can do that now
  • Why is it impossible to put all thease colors as background? Why it's just only for ink ? just please change the black background for setting and other applications! Why is it impossible to just feel it's good looking ? like iOS setting or andriod (I am not talking only about setting about everything if they didn't want to give me how to choose my background of thease app + setting just put nice color ,, Maybe gray or light blue anything will be much better than the white and black 
  • Windows phone design is about simplicity my friend. We all live by a code and the code is simplicity
  • Nice! I love the options for Windows 10.
  • Cool cool cool. Can't wait to try it out.
  • Looking forward to it
  • Good we'll be in full operation in mid 2016... I can wait.
  • hmmm...cool
  • I actually like the new tile spacing :P
  • Love the new tiles. Like seeing my whole background, less spacing between tiles is great
  • I want double height live tile...Please MS make it back....please
  • Yes, we want double height and large tiles back
  • i think they will be back...according to the leaked screenshot of the samsung...?
  • Looking awesome
  • I'm hoping the transparency is really like the top left image and not the bottom right image. Bottom right reminds me of the X1 tile transparency but I hope it remains transparent like Windows Phone currently is with its parallax background. Sorry for my rant, just don't want to see faint colored tiles when I desire full transparency.
  • You can choose.. in the second image  there's 3 options (None/Tile/Full) Tile is like we have now in 8.1 the background is black and the tiles are like holes to see the image behind... and the full is the new option.. like the X1 transparency, the image is the background and you can define the transparency of the tiles (more or less like the 3 last images)
  • Both these settings will be available. The top left one is transparent tiles like in Windows Phone 8.1 (I think It's the 'tiles' option) and the bottom right is like Windows 10 desktop background (I think It's the ' full' option). I hope all these settings will be available both in phone and desktop versions.
  • I just want to new update be more stable to i can download it on my main phone
  • where are office apps?????
  • Read the article!
  • What about aero effect ??
  • Mehn miss you cortana on these previews is it right for me to keep clearing the old preview and installing the new one afresh wont it damage my phone?
  • I hope microsoft has made it easier with the app apis to more easily incorporate transparent tiles for third party apps. I would alos love to have third party apps follow the transaprency, instead of having a patched startscreen of transparent and non-transparent live tiles. (example for apps like cnn and bing/msn weather app, project spartan pinned websites, bing/msn suite of apps, nu.nl etc.
  • I hope that they don't remove the 3-column option (ability to show more tiles).
  • Don't worry they won't remove it. Some leaks even show that we have a 4 column option coming.
  • Are u crazy the patched colours show beauty in diversity
  • I like transparency
  • Add the CLEAR ALL option on the background task.
  • Chinese.. Running surprises since 2000
  • I'd rather they fix the QHSUSB_DLOAD problem first....
  • Does the Preview support Bluetooth keyboards?
  • Why in the first 2 pics the photo is not on the background?
  • What I'm looking forward to: Stability & fluid navigation, much improved People, calendar and email apps and consistency
  • Where are the 4 medium column tiles? Will it be in this build
  • Finally fixing the terrible settings tile... Looks 8bit on 1st TP
  • So if Microsoft is based in US why Chinese people get to test new software before Americans ! i understand most smartphones are made in china, but early OS versions, it's supposed to be exclusive to Microsoft employees ! im confused
  • Don't know if I prefer the new tile layout over the current ones. The transparent tiles, on the other hand, are a welcome addition!
  • While it is definitely nice to have more color options, I still wish they would put a color picker or RGB slider controls instead, so we can pick our own colors and shades.
  • Sweet
  • Is glance supported yet?
  • I wonder if they will implement Aero Blur on phones too just like on how the Start Menu looks.
  • Why only 48 colors? Why not just a color picker and open up the possibilities?
  • At least this is a Wysiwyg way of personalization, while on desktop and tablet it's simply a mess. How can I get rid of the stupid start background?
  • You can set a solid color as background, can't you?
  • Screw the lock screen, how can i get the wallpaper of the asian chic!
  • The new build should be out today, they did say early next week back in build. It didnt come out yesterday so its gotta be today, its a further delayed release otherwise :P
  • Live tiles must remain, especially people hub. If not no point to choose windows phone.
  • well i like the tiles and all, but could you guys let me edit the 2 top rows of the action center as well? not to mention the cellular network is missing in the action center.
    also the task switcher is having a bug.
  • New build this week? Tuesday or Thursday....
  • entire UI has been changed in WP10 , but the lockscreen still the same  it looks too ordinery. terta is no more, live lockscreen beta is horribly buggy.  atleaset MS should try to change the UI of the current Lockscreen, 
  • Patience kid patience.. They will come up with new lockscreen UI with future builds
  • lets hope for it... 
  • Don't worry. They'll screw that up too.
  • look at how charming that start screen looks, I definitely like the windows phone 8.1 feel, will definitely use this rather then having the wallpaper in the background like the later images
  • just hope is more stable to run on one's primary device
  • Looks like still no live tiles yet
  • All Chinese are fake...dont believe it
    Fuck u fake Chinese.....
  • It would be nice to be able to change the default white icon color to a gray or black tone for light backgrounds
  • They definitely should do something about lock screen notifications. A slide-up from the bottom (similar to the media center in iOS) or the slide-in menu from the left (similar to that of the Ubuntu phones); except it'll only show notifications and that will without any limitations of apps of course.
  • yes, MS should do something about lockscreen, but not anything like ios or android or ubuntu , they should make something new, like some of the transition effects of Powerpoint. :P each time it will perform new effects 
  • They need to change the entire design aesthetics. I don't believe they can do much on the current design. We need heads-up notifications for ALL apps.
  • i agree, the current Locksreen UI is too ordinery, it needs to be changed entirely 
  • I know people say its not meant for daily drivers. But truth of the matter is those that do tend to have the most valuable feedback as they are using it all the time. Also more likely to spot bugs that they can report and see fixed in a future build. ;) "The more you know" -Markiplier
  • I love how they reduced the negative space on the start screen, due to the background and the bigger tiles.
  • MS has to stick with one experiment either transparent or coloured tiles...
  • Icons look shite...
  • Negative space was good and elegant. Now looks cluttered like Android
  • The logo of edge browser still dint change. Though the new one is not much attractive.
  • Omg this looks great.... Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • When will an update be available?!
  • This week, as stated in the article.
  • Gud
  • Since many apps have their accent colour, I think the slider should be the linked app where it would adjust the transparency but not blanket one color for all tiles but according to each tile/application's accent color.
  • I understand its a preview, but  I installed the latest build via the insider program app on my 925 - it was terrible! crashed every 5 mins, touchscreen became unresponsive. WIFI and cellular network connection issues just to name the ones that made it unusable. Did anybody else have these issues??? I have had to revert back to 8.1 within 2 days. Shame, as i think some of the features are pretty neat!
  • I want LIVE WALLPAPERS !
  • colors from 21 to 48? more like from 21 to 28. half of the additions are almost duplicates.... i still dont get why they dont implement a color picker? it shouldn't be a fluid one like in photoshop, only one to provide a color slider with all colors and at every color a box with something like 4-5 shades.
  • Agreed. Colour picker would be great
  • Can't wait to get my hands on this.
  • later this week??? if i remember correctly it was supposed to be available by the end of april, and Gabe Aul said that it should come out "early next week"... that means today or tomorrow... well. let's see!!!
  • Wen in India?
  • THIS IS LOOKING AWESOME!!
  • Some of the colours look really similar to each other.
  • New accents... THANK GOD!
