The BlackBerry 10 virtual keyboard is one of the coolest new features of the OS. With predictive, in-letter text and multilanguage support, it has the potential to change the way virtual keyboards are perceived. Lucas over at N4BB put together a video showing an up close look at the BlackBerry 10 keyboard. He runs through some of the keyboard options and demonstrates them on his Dev Alpha on the latest software build. Its great to see the keyboard in action and the options and settings available. I’m quite sure I’ll go with the In-Letter option. The In-Column option looks similar to what is currently in use on the PlayBook, but the In-Letter option with the animations looks to be the most efficient typing option in my opinion. As a side note, I noticed how smooth and quick the dev alpha was when minimizing and switching apps. Definitely quicker than the PlayBook.
Check out the video below and share your thoughts on the BB10 keyboard! Which configuration will you go with? Any landscape typers out there?
Thanks for the video Lucas!
