Keyboard Shortcuts on the Z10?!? I know it will be available on the X10!
Good day CB Nation,
During last nights LIVE CB HQ launch in TO, a few questions were asked in regards to BB10 having Keyboard Shortcuts like we currently use on our BBs within the 'Messages' section. For example: 's' would bring up search, 't' all the way to the top, 'c' to compose, 'alt + u' to mark read/unread and so on...
Our fearless leader responded verbally through the LIVE broadcast saying that he was not sure if these Keyboard Shortcut keys would make it to BB10, but BlackBerry themselves have 'in a way' confirmed that they will be there for BB10 with Keyboards.
My proof? Click on the following or check out the pic Below:
I'm a keyboard guy, but will be venturing into the Full Touch Z10 model because of the extra real estate on screen that i could benefiting from. What would be really cool is if these shortcuts would be implemented into the virtual keyboard as well, meaning, swipe up to make Virtual keyboard appear then use the letters (as mentioned above) to quickly search, compose, mark read/unread, go to top/bottom, flag, etc...
What do you guys think and does anyone know for sure if this is happening?!?

That picture is of the first dev alpha, and my understanding is they have eliminated the gesture to bring up the keyboard at will since then. It now only comes up when there's something to type.. so since it's impossible to launch keyboard when looking at the messages list for example.. it would be impossible to use a shortcut.
