PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For me, the two most interesting products in the operating system space to look forward to are Windows 8 (due to just how different it is), and BlackBerry OS 10. BlackBerry? Yes, and it's simple to see why. The BlackBerry Playbook, while not the most successful tablet, seems to be loved almost universally by its users, which bodes well for BB OS 10. On top of that, it's based on QNX, which is some major brownie points right there. The company has released information on which resolutions the operating system will support.

That's a similar system to what Nokia have on the N9 with MeeGo Harmattan - if you swipe from the edge of the glass, it's an OS-specific gesture. If you only swipe on the screen itself, that's an application-specific gesture. A couple of people I've shown this to have said similar to you, but I have to say I love it after the first hour or so of use, and it's uniform across everything on the device so there's no inconsistency from certain apps or screens.
