BlackBerry PlayBook - Touch Gestures

Gear: BlackBerry PlayBook, Slate Tablets.

There are many gestures with the PlayBook.  Here's some of the gestures that you might not be aware of.

  • Wake Up PlayBook - Touch bezel and slide to opposite bezel (fixes that hideous sleep/wake button)
  • Show/Hie Keyboard - Touch the lower left bezel and slide finger diagonally
  • Quick Settings - Touch the left or right upper bezel and slide finger diagonally
  • Change To Adjacent App - Touch the left or right bezel and slide to screen center

The lower right corner seems to be unused, so I bet with a firmware update we'll get new features.
