Figured I would start a topic for Blackberry 10 since it launches in only 10 days. Doesn't seem to be much interest on this site even though it's getting a lot of interest and praise on other tech sites. It's gesture based and built on QNX which is a micro-kernel real time OS while the UI was designed by TAT(The Astonishing Tribe) using their framework called Cascades. Both QNX and TAT were bought by RIM. Other features include

Real Multitasking - apps are minimized to active frames which update with live info
Intelligent Keyboard - uses gestures
Hub - always running communication hub accessible from anywhere by gesture
Peek - gesture to glance quickly at the hub
Balance - separate encrypted work and personal profiles accessible by gesture
FIPS 140-2 security certification
70,000 apps available at launch

Anyway here are some demos in German that have been making the rounds showing how nice it's looking.

Hardware, OS, and Usability


Voice Control

They're bringing some unique features to the table. It'll be interesting to see how consumers react to BB10. I have a feeling it'll be a big hit in Canada.
