Q10 demo vid
Couldn't quite catch his name at the beginning, but the Product Manager in this video does a nice job with the demo.
Much better than the video of the guy with the shaky hands...
RIM is dead. Long live BlackBerry!

Hower, there is a catch about it....
You can see a real good example of this effect on The Verge, their Hands-On gallery features a close-up of the Q10s display:

Note the burned-out text as well as the rather clear visible pattern there.

This vid makes it looks amazing. The shaky hands guy sucked at using the phone. This guy should demo all of them. Seemed well informed and well versed in using the phone.Phone:

Re: Q10 demo vid
I had a big problem using a AMOLED display on the S3 in broad daylight outdoors. Screen washed out. Couldn't see a thing. Please tell me this won't be a problem with the Q10?

I had/have this on my Nokia phones and it actually works quite well.

Pretty funny that everything they looked at in that Q10 demo was standard Blackberry 10 stuff, no use of the physical keyboard at all.
Would love to see a demo showing how the keyboard works, keyboard shortcuts, how flicking suggested words to screen works, etc.
Still good to see it in action though. I'm leaning towards this compared to the Z10. I hope VZW carries it.
Edit: Looks like this thread has a demo video with actual typing - too bad the rep doesn't type very well tho..
Q10 misinformation from launch reps

What bothers me a little, and I can't say it comes as any surprise, is that the intelligent keyboard functionality on the Q10 doesn't really match the Z10, based on that video and others I've seen.
First because the suggestions area is limited to a smaller area at the bottom of the screen so can only contain what looks like 3 words, second because repeatedly moving your fingers up to select those suggested words constantly forces you to take your fingers away from the keys on the keyboard. (thus negating a lot of the advantage of physical keys IMHO)
Lastly because the advantage I mentioned elsewhere with the Q10's physical keyboard not taking up screen area, making the screen-size differential between the two devices less drastic, is compromised by the fact that the word-suggestion area does in fact impinge on screen area, though not as much as a full onscreen keyboard would.
If they come up with some very effective keyboard shortcuts, that might mitigate those problems a little, for me anyway.
