weird rotation and swiping

Just an observation about the rotation and swiping on the Z10.

I normally have the Z10 in a charging dock which has it lying on its side.

The screen and icons are to the side and so I have to swipe from right to left. When it moves to the active screens (say emails) it then rights itself and shows this screen upright and I then swipe from the bottom of the screen to the top.

Why if it a landscape mode, don't all screens don't work in that manner and you have to move between swiping across (and turning your head!) and up (or annoyingly take it out of the dock)?

 

Thanks,

S

Re: weird rotation and swiping

You have a dock? From where?

 

What you're seeing is known, and likely will be corrected in coming OS releases. BlackBerry needs to make all screens rotatable.. and some users say this issue is exactly why BlackBerry itself has yet to release the OEM charging dock.

I am using a non-BB charging dock which I had originally for my 9800. It is not the snug fitting, rounded dock which I also have, but a flat platform with a lip to rest the back against. Luckily the connection is the same as in the 9800 as with the Z10, so it works well, with the Z10 sticking out only a cm on each side of th dock. The spare battery charger is useless because of a different battery but not a problem. I've seen similar Z10 targetted ones on Amazon also.

Thanks for the info, I guess I just wait for the upcoming release.

 

Cheers,

S

Well, it really doesn't work that well, does it?

And now you know why the OEM charging/media dock has not been released.

The dock works well, it's the Z10 that doesn't!! :smileywink:

 

A bit like this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Decrescent-Premium-Desktop-Charging-BlackBerry/dp/B00C5AIE8I/ref=sr_1_5?ie=U...

Re: weird rotation and swiping

Right, I understand, but like I said... that's BlackBerry has not released the official Z10 dock.
