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?

I like the live tiles on the main screen. But after using my Windows Phone 8 for a month, I am not so enthusiastic about Metro in general anymore. The widgets in applications are very flat, which becomes tiring after some time, especially after a full day of work.

The widgets on iOS (I don't really know Android) clearly demarcate functionality in the UI and provide some liveliness. After some time Windows Phone looks is like a desert where everything looks like sand.

The live tiles are still cute, but do not convey so much information, since they are quite small. The nicest thing are photo(-related) tiles, since they give a bit of a personal touch to a phone.
