Part of a BlackBerry 10 L-Series video tutorial leaks

Part of a BlackBerry 10 L-Series video tutorial leaks
It only makes sense that as we get closer to the January 30th date when RIM finally unveils BlackBerry 10, more and more leaks will be revealed. We recently showed you a few photos of the BlackBerry 10 L-Series, including one picture of the device chatting with the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung GALAXY Note, and the Nokia Lumia 920. Now, we have 32 seconds of a video tutorial showing some of the gestures you will need to make to operate the device.

The video appears to be in the style of the video tutorial for the BlackBerry PlayBook and shows how sliding down on the screen removes the menu at the bottom of the page, but reveals a toolbar on top. It also shows how an upward slide on the screen will shrink what you are viewing on the phone to thumbnail size. It's not much, but it just might get the juices flowing for those waiting for the big day.

Agree... Even the clock or the way the alarm is set is MeeGo/MaeMo style...

Im really pulling for RIM to get back in the game. I dont know about you all but Im getting sick and tired of just having two decent OSs. Im excluding Windows as Im not at all interested in Windows OS as it just seems ugly to look at. No matter how you market those damn tile(active). It is still ugly. Also, is it just me or does the hadware look meh? Im really hoping that is not the finish product as RIM is known for putting out decent hardware.

That's not even the final phone design dude.. That's a prototype which will remain a prototype.

The upward swipe gesture... Nice. How come no one else thought of that?

im a huge BB fan..but the new jolla or sailfish OS(folks of MeeGo) re invent MeeGo and offers a swipe nature UI as well---up, down, left and right... thats why they are both beautiful! and im rooting for both of them!!!

Nokia did the same thing with MeeGo. Only difference was that you could swipe into any direction.
