Minor Windows Phone 8 change: Text selection handles


In the run up to the big unveil on the 29th October we are still noticing little changes which differentiate Windows Phone 7 from the new OS, Windows Phone 8.

From a video of the Nokia Lumia 820, where Test-mobile.FR seems to have been given pretty free reign of the handset, we noticed that the handles for the Copy and Paste feature has changed from the Windows Phone triangles to the much more iPhone-like round handles.

Hopefully Microsoft also updated the functionality of the cut and paste feature to allow it to function in many more areas also.

See the feature around the 7:30 mark in the video after the break, which also shows that the buttery smooth property of Windows Phone is still perfectly preserved in Windows Phone 8, despite the new NT kernel.
