Mashable have taken a Z10 running Blackberry’s latest OS BB10 and let users try it out, keep in mind that they have not been shown how to do things and this is their first go.
In the video the users are tasked with unlocking the device, finding an email, and opening an app.
As some would report, this is apparently not how things are done and most users watch tutorials about their new phones…I say not so, most everyday non mobile obsessive geeks don’t do this.
For me, I would not think I would have any issues with BB10 as I have used MeeGo for ages and am familiar with gestures on an OS. However for most people gestures are a pain, confusing as seen here and in BB10’s case too widely used across the OS.
Take iOS or Windows Phone, a first time user will easily pick these up and within a minute or two be almost at home. Android to some extent also but it is quickly becoming the new Symbian in my view, it has so many rabbit holes and areas to dig through.
So while industry folk and gadget geeks will quite like BB10 I cant see your average user liking this that much.
What do you think…let us know.
