RIM appears to have tackled the touchscreen keyboard challenge head-on and has implemented a host of features to provide one of the best-looking stock touchscreen smartphone keyboards we've seen.</p><p>RIM has worked with TouchType (the maestro's behind SwiftKey) to deliver a keyboard that intelligently learns your mannerisms from your Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as your messages and emails, to accurately predict what you're going to type next.</p><p>Although we couldn't test this feature to its full extent today, we were fans of the predicted words appearing on the keyboard itself, which could then be swiped up to use as the next word.</p><p>Swiping down cycles through the numbers and symbols, while swiping from right to left deletes the previous word.</p><p>Perhaps the most impressive ability is the custom keyboard feature which learns where you hit particular letter keys and invisibly adjusts the 'sweet spot' according to your typing habits. Over time, this will ensure that miss-hit keys are greatly reduced and that you should be able to type near fluently with little to no effort.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/bb10-os-hands-on-preview-notification-bar_1.jpg?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/new-twitter-banner_749.jpg?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_751.png?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> BlackBerry 10 OS –first impressions </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Our time with BlackBerry 10 OS was brief, but it still gave us a good idea of the direction that RIM is heading into with regards to intuitive gestures and the honing of the all-important keyboard which is the portal to nearly all of a smartphone's communication abilities.</p><p>We like what we've seen so far, so here's to hoping that RIM continues to develop what is shaping up to be a promising platform so that BlackBerry can finally be thrust into the next generation, joining the iPhones and Androids of the smartphone world at last.</p><p><strong>You may also like</strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/life-etc/news-nugget/makey-makey-turns-any-old-junk-into-a-keyboard-mouse-and-joystick"></p><p>MaKey MaKey turns any old junk into a keyboard, mouse and joystick</a><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/life-etc/news-nugget/just-because-they-could-%E2%80%93-1-billion-tech-city"></p><p>Just because they could – $1 billion tech city</a><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/news/portable-media/news-nugget/pebble-smart-watch-adds-alerts-from-twine-sensors"></p><p>Pebble smart watch adds alerts from Twine sensors </a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_885.png?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_750.png?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_1_654.png?1368526421" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/hands-on/blackberry-10-os-%E2%80%93-hands-on-preview </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/blackberry/blackberry-10-os-%E2%80%93-hands-preview/news#comments BlackBerry BlackBerry 10 OS Mon, 14 May 2012 17:14:40 +0000 Esat Dedezade 421158 at http://www.stuff.tv
