BlackBerry 10 is just a more traditional looking Windows Phone

I gotta admit, when I saw the new BlackBerry 10 OS with its new devices, I was impressed. The Q10 and Z10 are beautiful phones and BlackBerry 10 looks like a great OS. However, that being said, most of the new features aren't really new to the mobile industry, just BlackBerry. The new BlackBerry Hub where you can see all your notifications for your apps? The Windows Phone start screen has been doing the same thing. The new touchscreen BlackBerry keyboard that lets you slide words from the keyboard to the text box? While Windows Phone doesn't have that exact feature, there is a suggestion box that changes after every letter you type, and can theoretically write a sentence for you. Lastly, the browser looks almost the exact same as on Windows Phone. Now that all being said, I really am impressed by some of the BlackBerry 10 features like the Time Shift feature on the camera and the multi-tasking centered home screen. It just seems that BlackBerry is trying to play catch-up, and by building up the hype of the new phones, they want people to forget that they've seen most of this already.
