Video: Two-year old handles BlackBerry 10 like a pro

Video: Two-year old handles BlackBerry 10 like a pro
How easy is BlackBerry 10 to use? It's so easy that even a two-year old can use it. A video that was produced using the Story Maker app on the BlackBerry Z30, shows a toddler named Cherry navigating her way through the OS as though she had practiced using the gesture based software while in the womb.

Cherry shows off her prowess in unlocking the screen with a simple swipe up. And while she wasn't born when Palm introduced webOS at CES 2009, she minimizes an app and then performs the old webOS trick of closing it by swiping it off the screen, like the power user she is. Hmmm. Wonder how she would do with a BlackBerry Passport in front of her.

The two-year old was also able to visit YouTube where she called up a Yo Gabba Gabba video (Google it). If a two-year old can use BlackBerry 10 like a pro, no reason why the OS can't be as easy to use and intuitive for everyone.

People have enough time to complain but don't have the brain to try it. Very unfortunate, and the funny part is they would still feel proud and say publicly that then find BlackBerry 10 hard.. lol..

This is no miracle. Kids this day can learn fast by watching their parents doing it. So, it's not because BB is easy (it's not), but because today kids have octa core brain.

This video is to show the "tech sites" that said there is a steep learning curve to BB10 that there really isn't one. True, there is a learning curve to ANY OS, but the learning curve for BB10 has been blown way out of proportion by "tech sites". If you're an adult and can't use BB10 but a two year old can, then something is seriously wrong with you.

And so called tech sites found BB10 needed a deep learning curve because of confusing gestures. LOL. This kid puts them to shame.

Suddenly the stickers strategy makes sense. ToddlerBerry is going after marketshare in a new segment, attempting to find users who don't already have iOS or Android. They should rename the company to ToddlerBerry and give BB phones out to toddlers at Disneyland, complete with a sticker pack of their choice. Soon ToddlerBerry will spin off a new line of phones, BabyBerry. And then TerribleTwoBerry. And so on. Of course, the big win will be TeenBerry, where the newly revamped BBM will once again rule the airwaves! :)

The question is will those babyberry and toddlerberry will continue to use bb phone once they were able to think for themselves?

Those that think for themselves already use a BlackBerry. It's called CHOICE. Not everyone conforms to what the masses do like you.

FACT: Blackberry's future is better than ever under John Chen. BUT wasn't the BB10 which they are praising so much ACTUALLY developed under Thorsten Heins? What did Chen have to do with that?

John Chen took it to new heights. BB10 was actually started development wonder Lazardis and Basille. TH took over and saw its completion, but he didn't push where it needed to / should have gone, and TH was not "transparent" enough with things about BB10, like sales. Chen knew where the company needed to go, knew he had to get a team on board that supports him, and has executed quickly on his plans. He is no-nonsense, and holds everyone accountable for what they are responsible for.

The future of bb is NOT better under JC. What JC is doing, selling building/asset/employee, and firing lots of employee is actually make it better to sell bb. Which were failed under TH. This video is also NOT showing that the learning curve of BB is easy or as easier as other. It just show that some kid learn and use it. If you really want the truth, i.e, is the learning curve of bb os is as easy as other OS, then you need a number of sterile subject and watch each of them performing the taught task... in other words, this video proof nothing

How is BlackBerry not doing better under John Chen? What Chen has done is what any CEO worth their salt would do: He has trimmed the fat off of the company, thus making BlackBerry a more "nimble" entity. Removing buildings/assets that were no longer necessary was the right thing to do as it created more cash for BlackBerry. Layoffs, unfortunately, become a necessary evil when trying to ensure the survival of a business. Just ask Motorola or HTC. Under John Chen, the company has turned a small profit for the first time in many a quarter. Their stock is up. Their losses are dwindling down. He has played out a plan for BlackBerry and they are executing on it. They have become quicker at production, more so than they ever have been. This video DOES INDEED SHOW that the learning curve for BlackBerry 10 is not as steep as some have surmised. Dude, that's a TWO YEAR OLD. OPERATING A BLACKBERRY. WITH EASE. If you're going to sit there and attempt to justify that this video proves nothing, then you are either not as intelligent as you make yourself out to be, or you're just TROLLING. I say you're the answer is both, as you are a known hater of BlackBerry and a professional troll here on PA.

Clever but... a kid shouldn't be using a phone at that age. In fact, kids shouldn't be touching things like tablets, phones until they're 10+. When I was a kid we played outside with our friends, ran around In the park.... hid in the woods etc. Kids nower days just sit on facebook, twitter and youtube :S

Some Phones are a toy like a Moto E or how about a walkie talkie? But the ones like the Sony Xperia Z2, HTC One M8, and Galaxy S5 are real tools, while the iPhone, lower end Moto Phones, or a Walkie Talkie ARE toys. (sorry if you apple fanboys get mad)

Some phone are not even toys. There were some phone with fruit brand that require pulling battery too much. This phone is even lower than toys... JUNKS.
