In the contacts app, swipe from the top, hit options, and there's an option to collect more info about your contacts (oddly disabled by default). I'm guessing this is the feature where they showed news and events related to a person's work place, etc?

Another one that isn't actually hidden but neat none the less;
If you enable wireless synchronization in the BlackBerry Link software it shows your devices internal and SD card storage mapped wirelessly over the network in my computer, stick the phone somewhere on charge and copy all the music and videos you want to it.
Neat little feature. Pretty sure it was there for the PB.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but some people were asking how to swipe out of an app that is in landscape mode
previous tips said to slide in from the thin bezel but I found if you just turn your phone up and hold it in portrait mode then swipe up as usual, it will swipe in like normal. I've tried this with several different apps and it works just fine.

Precise cursor control while editing text: tap in your text. A magnifier appears. Tap the left/right/top/bottom rim of the magnifier to move the cursor in that direction.ORBIT for BB10 - The World In Your Pocket - World, Time, Weather in spectacular 3D. Demo on our site!

Re: Rejecting an Auto Correct On Purpose
Sometimes, you type in acronym or some word that is currently not included in your device's dictionary and when you press the space bar, it automatically substitutes a different word from what you intended. You can override this easily by allowing the substitution to take place (after you press the space bar of course), then immediately swiping to the left on the keyboard. This replaces the substitution with the original text you typed in. On numerous occasions I've seen this take place when I was typing out a message. I came across this by fluke. Don't take my word for it course, so please try and confirm.
Edit: So based on some positive feedback, seems to work for others as well.

Cool tip i got today, in the hub, tap search and got to the advanced search option (tap the 3 horizontal line at the left of the search bar) filter by unread, as long as you do not click cancel you will see here only unread items...."If you can't find anything wrong with your OS of choice, you might be a fanboy, if you can't find anything RIGHT with the smartphone OSes you DON'T use, you're definitely a fanboy." - Ashley Esqueda

This is something really cool I noticed today. It works for most apps too.
When you click things in an app and don't want to keep clicking back swiping to get to the beginning, if you swipe the back button to the right instead of clicking it, it will go back all the way.
For example, if you click a conversation in the hub and click an email in it, clicking back or swiping right takes you to the conversation again. However, if you swipe the back button to the right, it will take you back directly to the hub, not the conversation. This can also be used for peeking.
I've tried it in several apps including the hub, BlackBerry world, and crackberry app. It's really cool
