RIM Is Not Ditching Physical Keyboards
Research In Motion today showed off the virtual QWERTY keyboard it is designing for BlackBerry 10. The keyboard involves better predictive software for word formation and even sentence formation. RIM CEO Thorsten Heins noted during the keynote that the company hopes to take some of these innovations and adapt them for use in its devices with physical keyboards. A RIM spokesperson on-site at the event also confirmed to Phone Scoop that RIM is not going to stop producing devices with physical keyboards, despite its focus during the keynote on virtual keyboards. The spokesperson said that the company is all about offering users a choice, and pointed to its current device roster, which contains devices with both physical and virtual keyboards. The spokesperson also noted that while the first BlackBerry 10 device might have only a virtual keyboard, future BlackBerry 10 devices will have virtual as well as physical keyboards.
