Windows Phone 7 features "organic variations" in keyboard taps
Posted on 08-16-10 07:00 pm

Microsoft has been doing a lot of work in making the end-user experience of Windows Phone 7 at it's max: smooth rendering, transitions between apps, and now something I've never seen before: organic variations in key tap sounds. It makes sense, as I've disabled all my key sounds because they got too repetitive.

In the above video, Matthew Bennet, Microsoft's Senior Sound and Sensory Designer, demonstrates the variations in the keyboard sounds of Windows Phone 7, verses the iPhone. He shows that while the iPhone uses one single tap sound, Windows Phone 7 uses about 8 different keyboard sample sounds, all of which are very subtly different. 

Listen to the difference and let us know what you think below.
