After many delays, RIM has finally given people a look at its next operating system, BlackBerry 10, at the BlackBerry World 2012 conference. The new OS is a complete divergence from past BB operating systems. 

This time around, touch gestures play a major role in OS's navigation. Users will be able to swipe up and down or left and right to carry out certain tasks like answering calls and retrieving app information and notifications. 

The virtual keyboard also seems to have gotten a makeover. As it learns how you type, it will suggest words that you can choose by simply flicking upward. The camera software also got an upgrade. Now when you take a picture, the camera will capture frames before and after your photo and then let you pick the best moment. 

All of this sounds good, but it's all based on an Alpha build. We won't be able to tell how BlackBerry 10 will match up to iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. 

Watch the video above to see all the new features in action.
