BlackBerry 10 L-Series Goes Head-To-Head With iOS, Android, WP8

RIM’s upcoming BB10 hardware has been popping-up all over the place lately. We’ve recently had our first real look at some of the N-series components, while the L-series continues to show its face in pic after pic. The latest to arrive gives us a nice comparison between the L-series hardware and a few other popular smartphones on the rest of the major platforms.

We’ve got what appears to be a first-gen Galaxy Note, the Lumia 820, and an iPhone 5, next to the L-series hardware. From the looks of things, the screen size falls between the iPhone 5 and Lumia 820, likely somewhere around 4.2 or 4.3 inches. That makes sense, as we’ve seen that 4.2-inch figure attributed to some other L-series leaks. Even with the smaller screen, the handset still ends up larger than the 4.3-inch 820, due to all the extra bezel space around the top and bottom; it actually ends up with a similar look to the iPhone 5, materials notwithstanding.

So, what do you think of this lineup? Does the BlackBerry come off as a nice alternative to these more familiar phones, or in its desire to reinvent itself has it ended up looking like a bland amalgam of several other designs?
