Will OS2/BB10 be as effective on a far smaller screen?
Right, as we all know OS2 works very well on the PB. Will the transfer of the OS to a smaller phone screen work as well? I'm trying to figure out if the bezel swipes will be just as easy on a 3"-4" screen.

Right now with the playbook, when you swipe up and the app is in the smaller window, do you think that's good?
Hold the playbook in the portrait direction and open your apps, swipe up to make them smaller, do you like this?
BB10 phones will have a screen that's bigger
I think it will be great

if there ar gestures on bb10 phones i reckon they will work like gestures on webos on the palm pre, have a small gesture area at the bottom of the screen (where the home/ menu keys would usually be located) that can read left, right and up swipes

BB10 will almost certainly be different from OS2, especially if the mock shots we saw a couple months ago are what they are moving towards. I'm thinking the tablet and phone UI's will differ some, with the backend OS being the same. I could be wrong, but I see no reason to make the two identical. similar fine but why have a small version and mega version doing same things. Just MHO.

I was pondering the exact same thing! The playbook is know for being in landscape mode so will most of BB10 smartphones will have to be used in landscape mode for even the most basic app. Untill the BB10 alpha kit comes out we will never know! *fingers crossed*
