Windows Phone 8 keyboard pop-up will now take on Accent colours

The HTC 8X video tour, which I am sure is highly unauthorised (and now safely downloaded to my PC) revealed a few titbits not seen previously.

One of these is a look at the Windows Phone 8 keyboard, which seems largely the same as the one in Windows Phone 7, except that it seems the keyboard letter pop-ups will now take on the accent colour of the start screen, adding a bit of fun to what can be a drab element in Windows Phone.

We have previously seen the keyboard will also feature a new Type Ahead feature that will aim to complete sentences as well as words.

The video had also earlier revealed that users will be able to download all possible keyboards and their associated word completion dictionaries, a significant change from Windows Phone 7, where users were largely stuck with the keyboard their carrier chose.

See the video again after the break (before Microsoft removes it from YouTube of course)

Thanks Bivash for the tip.
