Have you been considering the new BlackBerry Z10 but aren’t sure what to think about the still-fresh BlackBerry 10 operating system? If you’re an iPhone or Android owner, now you can try out BB 10 in your mobile browser.

It’s a relatively simple demo that gives you a chance to try out the interface, predictive keyboard, BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry Hub, and other programs inside BB 10. The demo isn’t fluid, but it does at least give you a sense of what it’s like to use the Z10.

In our own review of the BlackBerry Z10, we didn’t give the phone high marks because it features a crummy app selection, limited functionality, and instability. But perhaps you’ll have a different opinion?

To access the demo on your iPhone or Android phone, just point your mobile browser to BlackBerry.com/glimpse.
