When describing the BlackBerry PlayBook’s interface, the word “different” comes to mind. And while it’s undoubtedly a nice breath of fresh air, figuring out how to do stuff can be quite tricky, especially for new tablet converts. In fact, it might even make you feel like an idiot.

Take erasing a photo from your tablet for instance. Erasing a photo from other touch interfaces typically involves bringing the photo up, touching and holding either the image or an icon somewhere and voila — a "delete" option for your image appears.

But that isn’t the case for the BlackBerry. To delete a photo from Research in Motion’s tablet, you’ll first need to swipe down from the top bezel while the photo is highlighted. Go ahead. Swipe from the top down and you’ll see.

Note: Please don’t be confused by the Facebook page on the image above. That is actually a screenshot of the Facebook login page that I accidentally took (that’s why I’m deleting it). How do you take a screenshot with the BlackBerry PlayBook you ask? Well. go ahead and check out my BlackBerry PlayBook screenshot tutorial. (Why, yes, that was a shameless plug.)
