Can I still Trade-up my Dev alpha B device now

Hi all,

 

I am getting a Dev Alpha B device in a month or so. Since all the Dev alphas (excluding C) will be disabled on 30th June, 2013 I won't be able to use this device for good amount of time. So can I trade-up this device for the Limited Edition Z10?

I already have 12 apps in BlackBerry World published this year (all are ported from Android). Can I use those apps in the trade-up form? Is there any criteria for the apps?

Re: Can I still Trade-up my Dev alpha B device now

It's not too late as long as you had a qualifying app submitted by February 28. Main criteria is as follows:

Application Criteria.

3.1 Applications must provide a functionality that is considered useful to the end user, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion. However, the following categories of applications are specifically excluded from eligibility for the Offer:

(a) Web launchers or shortcuts;
(b) Web browsers;
(c) Applications that provide a simple, single function, such as playing noise or displaying a graphic; and,
(d) Applications that already exist for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet that will work, as is, with the BlackBerry 10 operating system without any changes, modifications or other revisions
(collectively, an “Excluded Application”).

The revised timeline for these draws was that they would supposedly happen on April 9.  

Was the revised timeline met this time?
