Left Handed users BB 10
I am an avid BB user and am counting the days until January 30th. I am left handed and was curious if anybody knows if the BB 10 has the capability to be used by left handed users? I'm sure it will be fine but I was just curious.

It would seem like the main peek gesture would be less comfortable for a left-handed user, but still usable, it would probably be a bigger issue in the future when they will presumably have bb10 devices with larger displays and you would hope they would introduce a left-handed mode for those that needed it.

I think lefties will actually have an advantage too: your hand won't cover the long-press context menu.ORBIT for BB10 - The World In Your Pocket - World, Time, Weather in spectacular 3D. Demo on our site!

I forget the reference, but I just read that one of RIM's lead designers who was involved in this is also left-handed, and says that it's not a problem and works equally well for lefties or righties.

It seems from the videos I've been watching that it's designed for righties. FIne for me, as I'm right handed. But my wife is a lefty. It seems like it would be an easy thing for them to code it to switch for lefties and basically have a mirrored version of the OS, no? That would also be a huge advertising boon, as no other smart phone is that customizable...
