The attendees of the recent New York Times DealBook conference got a chance to spend some hands-on time with the BlackBerry 10 device. BlackBerry is a founding conference sponsor, Frank Boulben, CMO for BlackBerry, and Vivek Bhardwaj where on hand to offer an exclusive preview of BlackBerry 10 to some of the most insightful financial, business and economic thought leaders. The demo itself focused on BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Balance and BlackBerry 10 Keyboard.

After the demo, Donny from Inside BlackBerry Blog stated that he had a chance to speak with a few of the attendees and here is what they thought::

I talked with Vivek afterward, and we both agreed that one of our favorite moments was when an attendee thought he was demoing on a QWERTY device, and he had to hold it up and show the audience that it was a full touch model. “It goes to show the effort we’ve taken to make sure the keyboard on BlackBerry 10 feels like a BlackBerry keyboard,” he said.

While the panel discussions inside the conference were largely geared towards the post-election outlook for the economy, the audience definitely left with a strong sense of where BlackBerry is heading in just a few short weeks.
