on 1 May 2012 11:30 am
Starting Wednesday, May 2nd developers will be able to collect their BlackBerry 10 Alpha Dev device while attending BlackBerry 10 Jam. Just in case you're wondering the specs exactly though we have a full run down of the device.
- OS: BlackBerry 10 Developer Preview V 10.0.4.197.
- Display: 4.2-inch 1280x768 HD LCD (356dpi) touch screen.
- Storage: 16GB Internal.
- Network: Quad Band HSPA+, No LTE support enabled. microSIM.
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, NFC
- Cameras: Front Facing with no flash. Rear Camera with Flash.
- Ports: 3.5MM Headphone Jack, microHDMI, microUSB.
- Battery: Non-Removable.
Most of the stuff listed here will carry over to actual BlackBerry 10 devices, however the non-removable battery has become a pain point for some with many users hoping RIM does not release a consumer device with a non-removable battery. Also notable is the fact that RIM only has the camera and web browser loaded onto the device, in other words it's barebones but will be opened up with OTA updates as development progresses.
