BlackBerry Q10 Keyboard shortcut Demo at BlackBerry Jam Europe


Onstage here at BlackBerry Jam Europe, Vivek demoed what he’s calling Type and Go on the BlackBerry Q10. Basically, it is a shortcut designed specifically for the physical keyboard device, where you just start typing an action, then a name, and you can quickly take action.

Type and Go is a productivity feature in line with the other BlackBerry 10 features – like peek and BlackBerry Flow – that are designed to keep you moving quickly through your information, taking action along the way as needed.

Have a look at this quick video to see the Type and Go feature in action:

The example Vivek gave was for an email. He just started typing “email” then the contact info, but you could do this for Facebook, Twitter or even BBM. Take this for example: “BBM – Alex K. – What’s the best thing you’ve seen at BlackBerry Jam Europe so far?”

Let us know what you think about this feature and the other demos of the BlackBerry Q10 from last week at the global BlackBerry 10 launch.
