The BlackBerry Q10, and likely other future BlackBerry 10 QWERTY devices, feature a unique feature dubbed ‘Instant Actions’.

This is a time-saving feature that allows you to type and perform tasks faster by using shortcuts. From the Home screen, you can simply start typing to search, or type “email John” to compose a message.

Together, the classic BlackBerry Keyboard and Instant Action make it easy for commands to be taken quickly and directly from the Home screen. Check it out in the video below:
