Research In Motion's Jeff Gadway, senior manager of product marketing, answered reader questions submitted to us via Twitter.

What makes BlackBerry 10 distinct from iPhones or Android devices?

What really sets BlackBerry 10 apart from these other platforms is its brand-new user experience. The current paradigm that prevails, this in-and-out between applications, has been out there for about five years now. And so with BlackBerry 10 … we're really eliminating the need for a home button; you don't need to go in and out of multiple apps to complete a task.

Will BlackBerry 10 still leverage RIM's data compression with the new Web browser?

We've got some great new features on BlackBerry 10 that utilize BBM. But [as for] the actual details of how we're using the infrastructure pieces, I can't speak to exactly how we're using our infrastructure.

How well will BlackBerry 10 integrate with Lotus Notes and Microsoft Outlook?

We've done a lot of work to enable some great, killer integration features with things like Outlook, but [these are] a couple of features that we haven't actually talked about yet. So you'll have to stay tuned to our Jan. 30 launch event.
