Criteria to qualify for a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device

It has been known for a while that developers could get themselves a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device but it wasn't always clear who, or how one would qualify. Today, RIM has outlined the criteria for developers.  

  1. Submit a qualifying BlackBerry 10 app
  2. We will send you a note indicating you qualify and instructions on how trade in your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha
  3. Complete step 2; a follow-up email will be sent after the BlackBerry 10 launch event on January 30th, 2013

Here's a cool story. After winning Olympic gold in mens hockey, Research In Motion commerated the event by handing out custom designed BlackBerry Bold 9700's with Patriot branding to the players. In addition to having them given to Team Canada, Research In Motion also made 20 of the devices available to Future Shop employees who had the best sales records In February to give away as sales incentives.
