Revamped Touchscreen Keyboard
If RIM's BlackBerry smartphones are known for one thing its their physical keyboards. But when RIM CEO Thurston Heins showed off BlackBerry 10 on running on BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha, one thing was conspicuously absent from the device, a physical keyboard. Instead, the device was sporting a slick new touchscreen keyboard complete with predictive text and gesture-based features such as swipe to delete and swipe to text.
But RIM hasn't given up on its roots. Expect to see BlackBerry smartphones complete with physical keyboards when BlackBerry 10 launches later this year.
