Both 'deviceName' and 'fingerprint' was already supported by the
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.
... which we don't know at the moment.
We know the device name from Bluez, like ('Nokia N900', 'Nokia
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

Advantage of "extend fingerPrint": less templates on disk, less data to
transfer via D-Bus, small list of configs to choose from in GUI
Disadvantage of "extend fingerPrint": as soon we have more than one
model, the first entry can no longer be a simple "Manufacturer Model"
For example, suppose we have "fingerPrint = Nokia 7120c, Nokia N85".
I would find it confusing to have a "Nokia N85" and then being told by
the GUI tells me that "we think you have a Nokia 7120c".
I think the GUI can still tell you "we think you have a Nokia N85, because
is a perfect match and we know the device name is Nokia N85, though the
template name is Nokia 7210c.
