BB10 device

We are looking to build some apps for BB10. Is there a way to get a BB10 device and we are willing to pay for it?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Re: BB10 device

I am also facing this issue.

 

I wonder whether we could purchase a dev alpha machine?

 

This is critical for us to develop and release our app on BB 10 platform.

Re: BB10 device

BlackBerry 10 Dev Alphas are not available for sale.  However, you can obtain one by attending a BlackBerry Jam event.  Refer to this link for a list of events.

Re: BB10 device

Thanks for the reply. However I can not attend that conference in California. Will there be any events in Ottawa? Or no other way to get the device?

 

Thanks again!

All events are/will be listed on that site.  We did do an event in Toronto and Montreal, but not Ottawa.

 

There is no other way to get a device.

Probably no,

Unless there will be a second wave of Jam World Tours.

Re: BB10 device

Is it true that developers with a Dev Alpha can trade theirs for a limited edition device if they submit an App that is accepted before the BB10 launch?
