BlackBerry adds multi-language keyboard to PRIV

Since the PRIV is running Android, it is missing a few features from BlackBerry 10. Today BlackBerry added multiple languages to the keyboard. You can now set a primary layout and add up to two supporting languages. In my case, I use the German layout and added in English (Simplified). :-)

Shouldn't that be "five sentences or fewer"?

I know about the site, and of course it's a good thing, but it's a shame there's no Contact Us link on the page to make the same suggestion.

This is so great. It is beyond me, why others are not implementing it.

I also use and enjoy the multi-language keyboard every day, great tool.

However, I have one wish, Blackberry: Please learn and adopt two things from my wife's virtual Android keyboard: Add a permanent fifth line on top for numbers (as BB only does when typing passwords), it makes typing so much more convenient as you don't always have to hit the 123 button first before you can type a number. And please add the German (and other languages') umlauts (äöü) to the regular lines, there is enough space on today's 5 inch screens for these. The typing experience on my Z30 would improve so much with those two little tweaks!

very nice, one of my favourite feature on BlackBerry 10. I might have to take a closer look at the Priv then..

Stephen, English (simplified) vs English (traditional). ;-)

I have been waiting for that feature since Saturday. ;-)
