Please keep in mind the Dev Alpha B is not running final software, nor does it have final hardware.

Video Details:
This week, I borrowed a colleague's iPhone 5. With the help of another co-worker, we filmed a quick comparison video in a meeting room. Since the Dev Alpha B required a micro-SIM and I did not own one, my intention was to connect both smartphones to the Mobile Hotspot from a Bold 9900. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5 refused to connect to the Hotspot even though the password was definitely correct (must be a bug in iOS 6). Thus, we improvised by having the Dev Alpha B run off Mobile Hotspot from the 9900, while the iPhone 5 was directly connected to the carrier.

Since both smartphones ultimately connected to the same carrier (Fido) the test is fairly accurately. I expected the iPhone 5 to do better because the Dev Alpha B required one more step in getting carrier data. However, BB 10 still came out on top. In addition, the BB 10 OS shown is, not the latest developer release of, which is supposed to be even faster.

We will be conducting further tests between BlackBerry 10 and other platforms this week. Which match-up would you like to see? Post it in a comment below.
