  • The BlackBerry Beta Zone Will Be Getting A Makeover Next Week



    I love the Beta Zone, it's no secret. I think it's been extremely underrated over the last year or so and is quite frankly one of the few things RIM has done correctly. Today, RIM has sent out an email announcing the split of the Beta Zone that will be coming very soon. The split will be separating the enterprise and consumer based beta apps into two separate sites. This is definitely a welcome change for Beta Zone employees and users alike.

    Also, according to our little sources, the new Beta Zone will have a different look and feel. It will be more along the lines of a blog and will be a lot more user-friendly for those of us that frequent it. The new sites are rumored to be launching next Tuesday (#TwosDay!), April 24th.

    Check out the email from the BlackBerry Beta Zone below!
    BlackBerry Beta Zone has grown significantly since its launch nearly three years ago and we are pleased to inform you that it will be evolving soon to better suit both consumers and business members who participate regularly in BlackBerry beta programs. BlackBerry Beta Zone will soon have a brand new sub-site, BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business, focusing on beta programs for business software and services. BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business will offer:

    Business specific beta programs and content
    An improved mobile browsing experience
    Updated community features
    The update is expected to occur in the coming weeks and requires no action on your part. While logged into BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business, you will be able to access all your business beta programs on behalf of your organization. Your existing BlackBerry Beta Zone account remains valid for consumer beta programs as well.


    After the update, the URLs for BlackBerry Beta Zone will be as follows:

    BlackBerry Beta Zone – Business: www.blackberry.com/businessbeta
    BlackBerry Beta Zone – Consumer: www.blackberry.com/beta


    Once logged in to either site, switching between business and consumer is simple, seamless, and will not require another login.


    We are very excited for the changes coming to BlackBerry Beta Zone and we look forward to your continued participation in BlackBerry beta programs.

    Best regards,


    BlackBerry Beta Programs
