the front of the BB10L looks like the back of the iPhone 5, hehe:)
but all in all it does look nice, to bad there is nothing physical that makes it look much different than any of the other black slabs out there.

Agreed. The phone looks really nice. And some of the features seem really cool (pull down a shade to enter bedside mode, the hub etc..) However the OS design looks old and boring. Happy with my Lumia 920 and glad I made the switch from BB.

I must be missing something, because to me it looks like pretty much every black phone out there, with the exception of the lack of keys.
Although that said, i think the 920 & 8X look pretty mundane in black too. Its the colours that really bring out the designs, Showing off the screen/keys in the 920, or details like the speaker grills on the 8X.

I am cheering for BB. Think they are among the best hardware makers out there. Like the classy look. But the more I see of BB10, the less I see a reason to get excited. I am sure current BB users will enjoy it, it retains the grid formula of BBxx up to now and will keep their large Crackberry fan base home, but I am not excited. Some neat tools and some neat features, but really nothing that screams: "Buy me!! I am different and exciting!!"
But I do love their devices. I miss their keyboards and call quality a ton.

I think the phone looks like one of the most boring phones I have seen since the original Galaxy S, which is fine since its supposed to be targeted at business users and they want clean and professional looking (which usually translates to boring in phones). I hate the look of the texture on the back, I wish they had used the same soft touch finish as on the front plastic, or made it a simple black or silver brushed aluminum. I think it would look much better in a white/silver combo (a la iPhone 5 and the MyTouch 4G before it).
All that said, if it sees adoption that out paces Windows Phone 8 and/or gets more dev support for big name apps, I will get this (or a newer version) instead of a Windows Phone 8 when I'm upgrade eligible in July. I cannot stand Android and as much as I love the iPhone 5's hardware (I've has a soft spot for 4" for a couple years) and the big name app support, I get so bored with iOS every time I try and use it as a main device. I'll probably end up with a Windows Phone 8 or BB10 and a red iPod Touch.

I don't really find the looks of the OS nor the actual device very appealing, which is disappointing (for me) because I really want to see Blackberry jump into the fight with iOS and Android along with Windows Phone. Just my opinion though, it's hard to tell how well it will actually do when released to the general public.
I do like how you operate BB10 with these gestures though, it looks pretty smooth and intuitive. Reminiscent of MeeGo and the Nokia N9.

Not very impressed - I have a BB, had an iPhone, now have an L920. When I get an upgrade for my work BB - I'll probably switch to it however this BB is the *last* device I'd switch for personal use ..
If you think apps are scarce on WP .....:)

Its pretty slick. Looks better than the black 920. For me its between this and a 920, if I hold off until it is released. I'm leaning towards the BlackBerry though because its browser is amongst the best in the world right now, like better than every desktop browser. The blackberry hub feature seems a lot better than the windows phone implementation and they're quite cosy with Facebook, so the app actually seems quite solid. Instagram is definitely coming too so yeah it might be another blackberry for me. Of course it will be very very hard to give up the windows phone OS and the 920's superb camera. But let's see I'll wait and watch. Wp8 seems too immature for me to go all in right away into.
