Alright, so this might not have a lot to do with Windows Phone, but I can’t help but share it. Blackberry 10 is very different from previous versions of Blackberry, in fact it’s very different from anything out there right now. So naturally it takes a while to learn how to use. Mashable decided it would be funny to put a Blackberry 10 device in the hands of smartphone users to see if they could figure out how to use it. The results are quite amusing.
Since there is no traditional home button many of the people couldn’t even figure out how to go to the homescreen. It was also hard for them to figure out how to unlock the phone since it requires a gesture. This is the one problem with gesture based UI’s like BB 10 and even Windows 8. Unless you see a tutorial before you begin it’s hard to know what to do. Plus there is a lot of information that is hidden unless you know how to access it. This can be unfriendly to new users. Check out the video and have a laugh at the expense of Blackberry.
