Both 'deviceName' and 'fingerprint' was already supported by the DBus
you can get the value using the two properties. What we try to finalize is to
make sure the first entry of the fingerprint will be the template name.

We know the device name from Bluez, like ('Nokia N900', 'Nokia 7210c')
I thought that device name != manufacturer+model?
Isn't the device name something chosen by the user? There's no
guaruantee that this includes either manufacturer or model.
we don't know is the platform (S40, S60, Maemo..)
This is the missing part, we can add a 'platform' property for each
Since we don't know the platform automatically, we can't use this for matching;
it will help when there is no exact match for a phone, the popped list of templates
have an additional property, helping advanced user better select a working template
We don't need something for advanced users :-/ We need something that
works for all users, as good as possible.

I think the GUI can still tell you "we think you have a Nokia N85, because it
is a perfect match and we know the device name is Nokia N85, though the
template name is Nokia 7210c.
Does the GUI get enough information for this already? If yes, can you
describe how Jussi can implement this? If no, what needs to be changed
