RIM to hand out 2,000 BlackBerry 10 developer phones in May

Article by on Sunday, 25 March 2012

RIM is hoping that the arrival of BlackBerry 10 later this year will put it back in the front seat with Apple, Microsoft and Google.

To help them along, developers in attendance at BlackBerry Jam, which runs during BlackBerry World in May, will be given a “BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha”.

10 Dev Alpha isn’t a consumer device, and will never be sold to the public. Instead the device in intended for developers and is running a modified version of the PlayBook OS.

“The purpose of this seeding is to give BlackBerry 10 Jam developer attendees a testing device to create excitement as they start to develop BlackBerry 10 applications alongside us.”

“To be clear, this is not a BlackBerry 10 device. It’s the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. It includes a modified version of the BlackBerry PlayBook OS which shows the path to the BlackBerry 10 OS, which has been customized to a phone. This device will allow developers to test the applications they are building with our BlackBerry 10 toolsets.”

This all kicks off May 1 to May 3. So at the very least you can be sure of a little more BB orientated content around that time.
