Even if you're a dedicated iOS or Android fan, you still might have some curiosity about BlackBerry 10. And by using your mobile browser to head to the BlackBerry 10 Demo page, you can get to experience exactly what it feels like to use the virtual QWERTY on the BlackBerry Z10, check your messages and social networks with BlackBerry Hub, select the best head shot with BlackBerry Time Shift and check out BBM with Screen Share.

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins might have felt a little vindicated when the company's recent earnings report showed 1 million BlackBerry Z10 units shipped in the quarter, which ended before the U.S. launch of the device could have any impact on the numbers. The BlackBerry dog and pony show repeats itself soon once the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 starts to roll out in the same order that the Z10 did. With a 3.1 inch  720 x 720 screen, many contend that this model will reveal the true demand for BlackBerry 10 because of the fabulous QWERTY keyboard on board the device.

If BlackBerry 10 is like that itch that you just can't seem to scratch, and you want to take it for a test drive, go to BlackBerry.com/Glimpse to get your chance. Drop us a comment afterward and let us know what you think of the platform.

The half-an-hour experience was okay in Carphone Warehouse™

I don't know if you needed a manual but the demo took me less than three minutes.

Some people just take a bit longer to learn things than others. Show some patience.

I actually enjoyed the demo. After demoing BB10, I'm excited to see how it will do a few months from now and can't wait to play with it in person. Great job Blackberry! :)

I bought the Z10, then sold my iPhone 5 and Nexus 4. I really like it. There are some minor quibbles (Hardware is last-ten, apps, etc.), but it is still worth it.
