BlackBerry Windermere hybrid trackpad/keyboard gestures revealed, photo available
Now, a BlackBerry user has discovered that said keyboard will support some familiar touch-screen gestures. There is swiping in four directions, along with touching, moving, tapping, and clicking gestures that let the user arrange items and content inside BB10. The Windermere keyboard is essentially described as a trackpad, which matches these newly discovered gestures. We also have a photo to go along with the news, and its subject looks exactly like one would imagine a BlackBerry trackpad will look. But where are the physical keys, then?
Apart from the odd trackpad/keyboard mash-up, the leaker said that the Windermere will show five columns of four icons on its 4.5-inch screen, while the Ontario will have a 5-inch display with 440ppi pixel density (possibly 1080p resolution) that shows four columns of five icons. Obviously, the Windermere will be a wider device, while the Ontario seems to be in line with the portrait-oriented 5-inchers we know.
