Earlier this week I wrote about how I was annoyed that RIM broke with years of tradition and flipped the functions of the P and N keyboard shortcuts in the messages application in BlackBerry 6. At the time I was curious if this was a glaring bug or if RIM did this on purpose. Turns out that a knowledge base article from RIM confirms that:
This is the intended functionality for BlackBerry Device Software 6.0.
According to them from BlackBerry 6 onwards these are the new shortcuts:
|Move to the next message down the message list||Press N|
|Move to the next message up the message list||Press P|
|Move to the next message down the message list||Slide your finger to the Right|
|Move to the next message up the message list||Slide your finger to the Left|
So what do you think? Does it make sense that P which in my mind stands for “Previous” will take you to a newer message? Sound off in the comments…
