RIM had its share of bad luck, loss of shares and patent lawsuits. Nokia has just asked US, Canada and UK to stop sale of new Blackberry.
Getting ready for January 30th release of new Blackberry 10, RIM had announced it will give away 7,500 BlackBerry Dev Alpha C to developers. Once Blackberry 10 is out devs can exchange their Alpha C models for full fetched new BlackBerry 10 devices.
RIM set out 7,500 devices to give away, so not everybody will get one. There is a point system to follow. The highest point count of 1500 is given to the developer who follows Built For BlackBerry program. WebWorks, Adobe Air, or native apps will get you 250 points. BlackBerry Elite members will get 200 points. The first 7,500 devs with highest points will get this Alpha C device.
RIMS wants developers to test their apps on BBs so to get ready for launch. No specs have been offered on BlackBerry Dev Alpha C, but if you are a developer and interested in getting new Blackberry 10 device, register with RIM.
There will be two handsets available upon release in early 2013. RIM is planing to release two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. All-touch version and QWERTY version of Blackberry 10 will be available.
