  • Video: Jeff Gadway Demos BlackBerry 10 At CES 2013

    Parmy Olsen of Forbes catches up with RIM's Jeff Gadway at CES 2013 to get a quick little demo of the BlackBerry 10 OS. Jeff goes over the Hub and Flow features, as well as talks about the BlackBerry 10 keyboard.

    What is interesting, is that he talks about a feature for the keyboard that is called 'heat mapping.' Heat mapping is a technology that is tailoring to the touch targets on the screen at which the angle that your thumbs touch the keys. Jeff explains more:

    "if you commonly mistype the 'o' key when you are trying to hit the 'p' key, heat mapping will recognize that and subtly move the target for the 'o' key under the surface, so that it allows the user to be more accurate and make less errors."

    Very nice to see these features being explained into greater detail now that we are getting closer to launch day. Check out the video above, and let us know what you think in the comments!
