Short demo points out utility of BlackBerry OS, input methods

In an interactive demo, BlackBerry is providing iOS and Android smartphone users a glimpse of what the new OS is capable of doing. The in-browser HTML5-based feature showcase walks users through user interface conventions. Features of the BlackBerry 10 demonstration include the BlackBerry Hub, Screen Share, Time Shift, and the unique BB10 predictive keyboard.

Apple iPhone users running iOS 5.0 or greater, and most Android users on Gingerbread or greater can access the demo at the BlackBerry demo website. Electronista trials of the demo found it to be short, but adequate in explaining the differences between the operating systems' navigation and data input methods.

The next twelve months will see Canadian smartphone manufacturer BlackBerry moving beyond its Z10 and Q10 models, releasing at least three new devices by Q2 2014. This according to a leak purporting to be a roadmap for the manufacturer's next year. Included in the roadmap are both a 10-inch tablet and a large-screened phablet model that could be the mysterious and as-yet-unannounced Aristo.

    Yet another article without links

    You provide several links back to other stories on your site but no link anywhere to the "demo" you refer to. I had to "google" "Blackberry 10 demo" to find it.
