    BlackBerry 10 Jam Attendees Will Receive BlackBerry 10 Prototype Device

    I've always been a strong supporter of providing tools/hardware for development prior to actually launching a product. With all the upcoming hype for BlackBerry 10, one would assume that RIM wants to make this a success.

    During BlackBerry 10 Jam in Orlando (May 1st-3rd, 2012), RIM will release the first beta of the BlackBerry 10 Developer Tools! These toolsets will include:

    • BlackBerry® 10 Native SDK
    • BlackBerry® 10 WebWorks™ SDK
    • BlackBerry® 10 SDK for Adobe® Air®
    • BlackBerry® 10 SDK for Android™ apps

    Toolsets are great, but what about how BlackBerry 10 will interact with hardware? Well, RIM has also announced that BlackBerry 10 Jam attendees will also be receiving a BlackBerry 10 prototype device!

    Not only will developer attendees get access to the BlackBerry 10 Developer Tools, but they’ll also be receiving a limited edition developer prototype device – the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha™. This is not a BlackBerry 10 smartphone – it is a prototype running a modified version of the PlayBook OS which will help developers design their apps for the BlackBerry 10 smartphone form factor. Just to be 100% clear – it’s not the final hardware or OS for BlackBerry 10 – it’s a device to help developers get started with designing for what’s coming. BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha is only for developers – not end users – and is only available to developer attendees at BlackBerry 10 Jam.
    Note: The BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha will not be running a final version of BlackBerry 10, but rather a modified version of the PlayBook OS.
