Sharp introduces Feel UX, could actually be useful

Ever wondered what a threesome between Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 would look like? Well, something like the new skin Sharp just introduced for its Japanese phones dubbed ‘Feel UX’. Feel looks nothing like stock Android, but it’s not a clone of another operating system, either.

Instead, it offers a beautiful and customizable lockscreen and an interesting take on the app drawer. There is no homescreen, just an app drawer. Swipe to the right, and you’ll find a Metro-like list of widgets and another tab to the right there’s a bunch of customizable shortcuts. Enough chatter, take a look in the video below:

The features in a nutshell:

  • Personalized and innovative lock-screen experience, allowing users to browse photos and widgets without unlocking the devices
  • Real-time weather display motion experience and animation
  • Desirable, gender-neutral palette and visuals
  • Streamlined, curated home space to smoothly manage applications, widgets, and shortcuts
