Messaging in three different languages, BB10 the only one?
Can any other phone vendor compose a message in English, French and Spanish in the same body "natively"? Also can they do this accurately without spelling mistakes? We all know some have trouble getting English right.
This will no doubt be a huge plus for people who converse in these languages. Is BB10 able to select any three languages for messaging?

I can type in other languages from my nexus.

my nexus can compose messages in several languages all at the same time. I think the answer is yes, bb10 can do that same

I think the whole idea is that BB10 will automatically detect and adjust when you switch languages. Granted, this will only work with languages that use the same typography, but a whole range of languages uses the same Latin alphabet (correct me if I'm wrong here, I'm no language scholar) as English. As far as I'm aware, no other OS can do this, although they still support switching languages, but will not do it for you automatically.Passport (10.3.0.1418) | Z30 (10.3.1.1016) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1, Lumia Cyan) | Surface Pro 3 (256GB i5)

correct i just long press the space bar and select a different one. It is different from BB10 which will switch to another language when typing. BUT im not sure how quickly BB10 will pick up on the difference on some languages either. From the demos it looks pretty quick.

I just tested this using SwiftKey, the engine that drives the BB10 keyboard. You can indeed start typing in different languages without switching keyboards as long as you have the language pack downloaded. I started typing a few words in English then switched to Spanish. After the first Spanish word, the predicted words were in Spanish as well. Switched back to typing in English, and then the predicted words were back to English.Everyone, everyone, stop fighting!
