BB10 Keyboard

It's common knowledge that typing on a BlackBerry 10 virtual keyboard is without doubt a whole lot better than on other operating systems. With the ability to have words predicted and a simple upwards swipe placing that word in your message it once again takes being productive to a whole new level. 

For hardware keyboard users we clearly don't have the swipe option, but BlackBerry 10 still learns from the words we use and can predict what you are going to type. It will place the options at the base of the display, so they are still to hand. 

Some users may choose to have spell check and these predictions turned off, although I can't think why. I'm pretty sure that by default when you get your new BlackBerry 10 smartphone the predictions will not be enabled so here's a quick guide to getting things set up and making life as easy as possible for you when it comes to banging out a message/tweet/status update etc. 

Predictions and Corrections:

  • Open settings
  • Select Language and Input
  • Select Predictions and Corrections
  • Toggle on/off Predictions

You'll also see that you will have further options for auto-correct with the Space Bar, Word Substitutions which are fully customizable, Auto-Capitalize, Period Shortcut and Learn New Words. All of these options can be switched off if you so desire. 

Spell Check:

  • Open settings
  • Select Language and Input
  • Select Spell Check
  • Toggle on/off Spell Check, Ignore Acronyms, Ignore Case and Ignore Words with Numbers

So as you can see, BlackBerry 10 has a whole host of options when it comes to personalizing your typing experience. It doesn't get much better than that!
