BlackBerry 10 shows off different toast notifications in leaked slides
Called Cinnamon Toast and French toast, they provide the user with unique ways to interact with various notifications. For those that do not know, “toasts” typically refer to simple notifications in a small pop-up.

Starting with Cinnamon Toast, RIM has taken hold of a pretty neat idea for when a message comes in. When a message comes in, the user is alerted. Once the user picks up their BlackBerry and begins tilting it to view the notification, the message provides a progressively more revealing preview of the message. Once the handset reaches an angle of 45-degrees, the whole message preview is displayed. The revealing feature is continuous and reversible, so once you have seen enough, you can place your BlackBerry back on the desk or table and the progressively revealed message disappears in the same way as it appeared.

French Toast addresses the “doh!” factor of accidentally deleting a message. It is an interactive response to deleting a message that does not require you to “confirm” the delete like other interactions might require. The notification allows you to easily undo the delete if you choose to. The alert remains for a period of 3-seconds and disappears once you begin to do something else. You can also place the notification on different parts of the screen.

We have known that BlackBerry 10 was going to be very gesture centric, now we see a bit more about not just gestures of the hand, but gestures in how we hold the device, and available interactions once gestures are executed. 2013’s release of BlackBerry 10 cannot get here fast enough.

I hope that RIM can rebuild. It's sad to see a company that was already so renowned in the field of technology, dying for lack of market insight at a time of transition.

If we stop to think, RIM fell from a leading market positions to insignificance in a remarkably short time!

But surely this is all or nothing from RIM. Or it changes the status quo, and redivide the Smartphone market, or close the doors for good.
