Video of gestures tutorial for BlackBerry OS 10 leaked
posted by Maxwell R. / Sep 29, 2012, 2:37 AM
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!

A good UI doesnt' require teaching, it have to be natural.. If you need to do that, your OS = failed.

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.

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.

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.
