Early BlackBerry 10 Handsets Will Be Touch-Only Devices
A RIM’s executive spoke recently about the architecture of BlackBerry 10, in Toronto, Canada, during a small event.

In fact, fast-typing records on mobile phone were broken on touch-based display using advanced predictive features and swipe-based onscreen keyboard.

RIM is set to launch the new OS version later this year in an attempt to slow or even perhaps reverse the migration of loyal RIM users to iPhone and Android.
