Video of gestures tutorial for BlackBerry OS 10 leaked
The gang at BlackBerryItalia.it managed to show many of the tutorials currently involved with BlackBerry 10 in the full touch-screen environment. The videos are short but informative. As you view them, it is evident that RIM wants this device to easily accessible to perform just about any task.
Based on the gestures outlined in the video, it looks like the company is on the right track. There are four videos, two of which the captions are in English, the other two in Italian. They are videos of a video, so you will understand that they are not very high quality, but they are quite legible. With these gestures, it looks like making your way around the device will be a snap.

BB has to be really different if it has to have any chance of holding its own in the smartphone game.
Desktop look taken by android
tile look taken by WP
Tray look taken by iOS
So how are they looking to differentiate themselves cuz their current approach cant take them too far!

10 is a number that should've gone way ahead of Android and iOS. I don't see that here...

I like BB10, it's interesting. This remind me of that "Sh*t Apple fans say" video. "Gestures... Gestures... Gestures..."

Wow, BB10, I love it, those Gestures are unique.

I'm quite impressed too I have to say. Certainly beats having to go in and out of different apps all the time and the CEO said as much in his recent BJam presentation.

A good UI doesnt' require teaching, it have to be natural..
If you need to do that, your OS = failed.
17. poddey (Posts: 75; Member since: 22 Mar 2012)
There is a level of teaching required for even the iPhone, e.g. press the home button at the bottom to wake it up.
I'm sure you can get to the Blackberry Hum the normal way by swiping through your homescreens to the right to find the Hub app. These gestures are more like shortcuts, which by definition are not obvious. It's not until you perform the shortcut that it seems intuitive, e.g. holding the home button down on the iPhone is a shortcut for launching Siri.

I actually really like the UI and gesture control. It's a bit refreshing from the classic interface of the iOS and Android. Can't wait to see this phone !

Lack of apps? It's not even ready to be released yet so where is the evidence that there "will be" and not "are" a lack of apps?

Try commenting without the words Apple or iPhone in it.
23. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
seriously why mention the iphone when theres no need
and if you measure how good a phone can be by how many apps it has then you shouldnt be commenting.
and lastly no one cares you want the iphone 5, not even slightly

By the time BB10 comes out the rest of the world will be using iOS 25, Windows Phone 37, and Android Double Fudge Banana Split.

no... not really! i think it will have at least 10-15% market share!! there's still so many solid BB fans all over the world!
why, i never thought of seeing BlackBerry left and right everytime i go in my place coz before i always see galaxy y only as an android device but now blackberry with different models! from torch to curve to bold!
dont forget about open webOS, Firefox OS, Tizen and Jolla OS!

Things are looking good here. So long as they don't miss another deadline for the release for BB10 everything should be good to go. I'm really liking what I've been seeing so far and eagerly looking forward to playing with it.
