    However i am wondering, will this be implemented as a sort of "app" , ie. the screen remains on, black background with a clock screen saver
    eating up the battery? or will the double tap wake the unit from sleep?

    Have a watch of the following video to see double tap to wake in action.

    I have one of the Lumia 925's and the double tap is pretty good, handy for one finger when you just want to see if you have any missed calls or texts..

    So far I haven't found the sensitive screen double tapping in my pocket just yet, so seems to work well!

    As for battery life, I haven't tried turning it off, however my Nokia lasts at least 40% longer than my iPhone 5.. When that Battery saver mode kicks in the battery just seems to last forever

    When your battery does get low, does the windows button flash to notify you?

    Hmmm good question I don't believe it does, unless it only does it once...

    However I do know if my battery goes completely dead and I plug it into charge the windows button pulses until the screen is on again

    Interesting. Does it pulse at any other time to notify you of anything else?

    Not that I know of, unless anyone else has?

    I'm hoping in a future update that add something like that as it does look pretty awesome...

    Check out the Windows button 10 seconds in on this video when he's checking the time on double tap clock. That must have been a very intentional capture otherwise idk why they would have included it. But why would they put it in an ad for the 925 if it didn't come with Amber?

    thanks for the video, double tap is pretty neat
    the lumia 925 has a special display that uses electricity only for the pixels which are illuminated.

    the other lumias 820,720,620,520 dont have this. the display is either on , or off. i am wondering this clock/double tap be implemented across the line

    I believe the display you're talking about is AMOLED. The 928 has it as well.

    I can't wait to have this OS updated soon. As promised this would happen early next month. Keeping our fingers crossed.
