Did anyone notice, that before in the terms and conditions of the portathon, they had mentioned that there will be a draw to win one of 250 Limited Edition Phones but later on they changed it to 250 Dev Alpha Devices. I know both are equally good phones for developers but have any of you won them ? Do you think they have notified the winners ?
Special Thanks To Blackberry for being so awesome to developers by rewarding us with such amazing gifts. They have the best eco system ever.

Yup, I noticed it too (changed from LE to Dev Alpha).
I don't mind a Dev Alpha (since I will be returning mine for a LE), however it would be totally useless if bricked in June. I guess they are still deciding what to do with that.

I thought it was the other way around?
I remember it saying that there would be 250 Dev Alpha devices, but then they said due to the timeline instead of giving out dev alphas, they'll just give out LE devices.
(Don't quote me on this though. But thats what I remember from the portathon chat)
