Intel is on to something fresh and exciting. Its personal phone which it is about to introduce to the world has a User Interface which has been given the title of “Obsidian.”
The UI by Intel is basically meant for Tizen and Android and photos of the device have been leaked to the public. Supported by Linux, Tizen is up for grabs in the Eastern hemisphere. According to Arstechnica, the South Korean giant Samsung is responsible for launching it. And while not a lot of Intel chips feature in the Android, nevertheless Intel is laying low as far as divulging information regarding its latest moves is concerned. The UI is still in its evolutionary phase, which means that work on it is in progress. This smart electronic device besides being under construction will feature signals that will turn a full 45 degrees and display themselves in the form of diamonds.
Furthermore, Intel is employing flat plans for this gizmo. If you want to open an app you can select from the preview menu. You don’t have to make everything explicit. The triple push panels lower down on the display are labeled: phone, message and contacts respectively. The screen can be locked or unlocked using a sliding facility. The various screens are also interconnected to each other thereby facilitating easy access to content. It is also termed “Josephine” which is the beautiful name that the French Emperor Napoleon’s spouse possessed.
Finally, it seems that the microchip behemoth, Intel is introducing some novelty items of its own. The platform it has chosen for its UI will later on feature other products too. But that lies in the future for now. Currently, the people at Intel are denying any knowledge of the UI. There is obviously more work that remains to be done in order to complete the device. In fact, if you were to really concentrate on what this system looks like you will see that it resembles the Android 4.x.
It is a fact of life that when something is revealed beforehand it takes some of the magic out of its actual launch ceremony. And to couple that with the reality that the UI is still in its developmental stages lends credence to the view that sometimes stuff just doesn’t measure up to the media hype created. The facts will be separated from the fiction soon enough though when the Obsidian debut occurs. Till that day, all we can do is keep waiting with bated breath and excitable emotions.
