These look great thanks! Everything looks so well thought out and organized, its gonna be hard giving up the QWERTY. Its so true that the one handed operation is important. Actually the most important messages email/txt/BBM had to be done with only one hand available. But swiping the word suggestions might just be as efficient, just like to have control and type the word I want because errors slow you down too, but the swiping for delete takes care of that quickly too!

I am hating this screen
It is as stupid as the iOS set up, it is not Natural to have to bring your fingers to the top of the device to send or cancel sending a message, all actions should be at the bottom half of the device or on an action bar above the keyboard,
the keyboard is about not needing to move your fingers from the keyboard to select words, this layout smacks that effort in the face.oops...
Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital. \

Agreed. Layout is probably for the keyboard pop-up at the bottom. Nevertheless, why does RIM feel obliged to redesign the whole BlackBerry UI experience. Just refine it and get rid of / streamline the endless menus.
Isn't the new UI supposed to be one-hand centric gestures and not to use both hands as most touch screen smartphones?Evolution of Communication: Rotary Phone > Dial Tone > Motorola Walkie-talkie > Nokia 2160 > Nokia 6190 > Samsung a460 > Samsung a920 > BB 8700 > BB 9530 > BB 9860 > PlayBook > Z10 > HTC One X+>Z30

Anyway for that Compose screen I don't need to know that I'm composing a message...its obvious. I hope there is a fast way of sending a messages that is consistant throughout the OS like for BBM and SMS and email. Those buttons on top seem to make sense because your thumb does tend to go that way but I've tried using the 9900 and it really isn't natural.
At times I am bombarded with messages so there needs to be a send button directly above the keyboard, that seems like it be perfect for me anyway (like where the trackpad is)

I'm not a fan of that email compose screen, but I'm someone who doesn't like change. Moving the send button up to the top as livejam said does help to prevent someone from hitting send in the middle of a half-composed email. I've done that on my Torch using the trackpad to move the cursor around.
They maybe need to make the recipient, CC and Subject fields a bit smaller. Who knows, maybe the folks at TAT have already thought of that by making the fields shrink after you've typed something into them...BlackBerry Z10 on Bell Canada

Something about the email-list screen still doesn't feel quite right. I can't explain it, but it's like some UI elements are out of place, or...something. I know that's very fuzzy and not actionable, but does anyone else feel like that?Terminal Musings: http://www.allengeorge.com

Looks nice....I would say parts of that UI still need some TAT refinment but still looking great
What I wish is that those pictures were all taken from a BB10 prototype phone, becuase that would mean that RIM has finally put great cameras on their phones.....

I believe these images are all taken from the RIM presentation of user interface guidelines, linked in the original Polish blog note:
| UI guidelines for smartphones and tablets - BlackBerry 10 - 1.0 Beta
I wouldn't assume that these are actual images of RIM's own BB10 software. They are mockups provided as examples for third-party developers. The dates are old (Tue Jan 31 is indicated, which means Jan 31, 2012 and not 2013), and I can't find evidence that the people identified as RIM employees actually are/were. This situation is quite different from the preview screenshots we saw a while back for the PB email and PIM software, which showed actual RIM employees' PIM entries and email lists.
