Developers To Get BlackBerry 10 in 6 Weeks

Research In Motion will greet the developers present at the "BlackBerry 10 Jam" event taking place between May 1st and 3rd with a nice little treat - the prototype of the new BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

The device, available as a "limited edition developer prototype device" has been announced under the codename of "BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha."

Before we get too excited and, let's face it, a little too jealous of the developers who will get their hands on the upcoming BlackBerry 10 model, RIM Senior PR manager Alex Kinsella explains.

"This is not a BlackBerry 10 smartphone - it is a prototype running a modified version of the PlayBook OS ... which shows the path to the BlackBerry 10 OS, which has been customized to a phone," says Alex Kinsella in an email to the media.

The developers who want to test the device should sign up for the event on RIM's official website, specially created for the BlackBerry Jam conference.

The upcoming BlackBerry 10 is believed to be a critical product for RIM's future development. The Ontario-based company put its best hopes on this device, which was supposed to hit the market early this year.

Some of us still hope that we will see the stunning BlackBerry Blade concept turn into reality.
