PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The smartphone world is, at this point, a two-horse race. Android has the numbers, Apple's iOS has the figures. Everything else - Symbian, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, etc. - are also-rans. Irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Even though, say, Windows Phone not making any serious headway into the market, despite boatloads of money poured into the platform, RIM still thinks it can do better with BB10. Austrian website Telekom-Presse has a pretty detailed video hands-on with a BB10 device - the Z10 - and it left me with one burning question: what is BB10's identity?

Nice one in that for me only the keyboard-point is in my list of notable pro-arguments. I have some more like Qt-support, WebWorks, Android-compatibility, posix-compatibility, security and the devices are usually rather sexy. I have a few negative points too some named already by others. Pros and cons.

All the comments and my personal experience result in: There is indeed something like an identity pushed by marketing to get customers on. But my personal receive and judgement isn't very much inline with them.

I doubt I am alone with that. Just look how Nokia stresses PureView at there newest Lumia wave. Nice but my take on that is that No, the camera isn't much better, its no argumeny and Yes, the OS is not ready yet. What Tom identified as Lumia's identity is NOT what marketing did. Its Tom's interpretation, take, left impression but its not what Nokia used as standout-argument. Not even close to. It would also not make sense since its not Nokia's unique selling point cause every WP has that.

What I conclude is that there is a huge difference in what a company may define as unique selling points for marketing and hows its received by any of us. What really matters is the later cause that is what will end in reviews, what friends will talk about, what we REALLY demand, liked, disliked and base our decision on to buy or not buy in.
