I've pretty much had the playbook since it's launch and have gotten used to the gestures.
Does the Z10 utilize the corner gestures the playbook has?
Swipe from the top corner to reveal the status bar and the bottom left to reveal the keyboard?
I use these gestures constantly on the playbook and am hoping they carried over....

Te keyboard gesture is no longer a corner gesture. It's 2 fingers from the bottom. The status bar gesture isn't there from what I've seen/heard so far, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it implemented later. Maybe a swipe from the corner could one day be a widgets page where one can quickly check weather, and things of that nature.
Hmm it seems like the corner gestures would have been easier to pull up the keyboard. Also, how do you see the time, signal, orientation lock and other features from an app without leaving it without the top corner gestures? I understand certain things being missing from bbos as they each had to be coded into the new bb10 os, but removing features that were on the playbook and worked well? I don't get that.

To check the status bar you just have to swipe a bit from the bottom, in any app. It makes sense to move it from the top corner like the PB, to the bottom, at the bottom it's easy for one handed use.
For the most part, the keyboard will know when to pop up on its own. If you're in a situation where the keyboard hasn't popped up for some reason, than chances are you've already got 2 hands on the device so swiping with 2 fingers isn't that difficult.
Swiping down from the top opens up the options menu. That makes sense to me.
You need to realize why certain things were designed the way they are. Think outside the box. Think about how you use the device and what makes the best sense. Don't take everything at face value.
