BlackBerry 10 OS – hands on preview
BlackBerry 10 OS – gestures
RIM is focusing heavily on gesture support to ensure easy one-handed navigation and aims to banish screens littered with menus and navigation icons with intuitive thumb gestures.
Swiping your thumb from the bottom right of any open app to the left will push in a notification bar on the right hand side.
Continue to slide and you'll drag out BB 10 OS' unified inbox in its entirety, and when we say unified, we mean it. Everything from hotmail to BBM is included here, all in one easy-to-access package.
Swiping your thumb from the left hand side of an email attachment reveals the original email, while continuing the slide brings you back to the unified inbox.
It all works really well and is certainly one of the thumb-friendliest methods of navigation we've seen.
