Ya, this is one of those times where I just need to keep words to a minimum and let the video do it’s thing. In case you can’t see the movie, in short: these leaked conceptual demos of Sony’s “Rachel” UI are stunning and give Android’s pathetic stock media capabilities a kick in the digital groin. So much so I would even compare these as good or better than the iPhone. I love the iPhone’s media capabilities and perhaps it could just be that I’m tired of seeing the same thing attempted on so man competitors and this new, unique UI has my captivated. Quite possible indeed. All I know is I want it — bad. Sony, don’t f this up. Please. Bring this to market and you will have a winner!

The layout Sony uses is very Zune-like. Personally, I like it a lot. The latest Zune has a stunning interface so a direct comparison is actually a good thing. The navigation is quickly discernible as vastly different than anything Apple. Every little part of Rachel shows that Sony has truly put in some wrench time. Even small things like transitions between pictures is well done. The fade out, move, fade in effect is a nice detour from Apple’s more common, simple swipe. I really could go on, but I said this would be short. So another movie is in order. Gaze on…
