Microsoft Kin on screen Notifications?

onscreenntofications I was browsing around the net and I happened to see a video over at Pocketnow showing off the kin2, but what actually caught my eyes happened 13 to 13 seconds into the video:

Excuse my drawing…I didn’t have a straight edge but seriously though, it doesn’t seem as if they’re using the toast notification system they showed off for windows phone 7. It is a bit strange to me that it doesn’t seem as if they are using it. This modal notification forces the user to deal with the notification first then go back to what he or she was doing before. This type of notification has it’s benefits but also has many draw backs depending on how it’s actually implemented.
