Blackberry has just announced their new flagship phone for the new Blackberry 10 OS. Whenever a new phone comes out on a competitor’s platform we like to measure it up against the best Windows Phone has to offer. Today that is the Lumia 920, HTC 8X, and ATIV S. Check out the chart above to see how the Z10 stacks up against the WP8 big dogs. On specs alone all four are very similar, but we’ll have to see how the OS and ecosystem compete with Windows.
We’re getting to a point in mobile technology where specs have platued. All four of the devices above have HD displays, dual-core processors, 8MP cameras, and front facing cameras. It wasn’t too long ago that only Android phones were pushing these incredible specs. With such a level playing field on hardware it really is the OS that has to make or break the experience. The question now will be what OS will take over third place? Windows Phone just recently surpassed Blackberry, but will BB 10 be enough to them to surge back into 3rd?
