Does your new Blackberry 10 key pad recognizes "FINGERNAILS"? I do not wish to use a stylist pen reminds me to much of using the Palm Pilot. If I have to use a Stylist, why not a pen, pencil, and paper.
I have the 8300 the pad is amazing! The product is amazing!

Very little information has been released about BlackBerry 10 products so far. If the BlackBerry PlayBook, which runs the same software, is any indication, fingernails will not work. Recent BlackBerry phones with touchscreens rely on heat from your finger to indicate where you're touching on the screen. Unless your fingernail generates heat (which I'm pretty sure it doesn't), you're going to be out of luck. Using a stylus, like you can on an iPhone or Android, is so yesterday.....BlackBerry phones are way beyond that.
I hope that helps you.

Currently my Blackberry has raised keys which making typing with fingernails ideal. A flat screen has "always" been impossible to type upon with fingernails. These screens only recognize "flesh". I doubt you are accurate in your answer-Sorry.
Again, I am asking has Blackberry's Developers able to correct this long standing issue? Can the new BB10 flat screen recognize both fingernails as well as flesh?
I hate to purchase a unit I can't type upon and must return. This is more a Developer/Tecnician question.
I appreciate your answer and I thank you for it.

Your question is actually faulty, since BB10 devices will include both full screen touch devices, as well as hard keyboard devices.
So, please distinguish which type BB10 device you're asking about: The L-series will be full screen touch only. The N-series will have a true keyboard.
