Dev Alpha B - my spare one is up for grabs

I have been approached by a few ppl over the Dev Alpha B I have no use for

 

I already had it earmarked for a friend but the company is buying him a Z10 in a few weeks so this one is up for grabs again

 

Now - the hard bit - there are bound to be loads of something for nothing applications so I have to thin the crowd so it goes to someone who can use it productively.

 

Tell me what superb app you're gonna write and send me a screen or two

 

I expect only postage as a payment but am prepared to mail to anywhere world-wide

 

You should note that this device is not currently in my possession - 4 weeks as usual (DA-C took three)

 

This is and offer I can only make once

 

The best idea gets it (the idea is yours - I just wanna donate to a good home)

Dude don't give your DA away you can do a second trade up.

I thought you couldn't but I emailed BB directly and they are hooking me up on the second one.

I just dropped off the DA at UPS today.

Re: Dev Alpha B - my spare one is up for grabs

Told you - sleep time :smileyhappy:

 

I would prefer some kid getting a start on BB for poatage than me flogging an LE on eBay (I find that bad for SO many reasons)

 

Don't care about the large newbie crowd but there is someone out there who will find it worth a million bux for postage

 

I try to do good things...

Good on you then!

Make sure the person who you send it to isn't 60k kid in disguise ;-)

I'll let you sleep, now.

Re: Dev Alpha B - my spare one is up for grabs

Hmmmm... I would trade you a Dev A for it :smileyvery-happy:, but since it will take weeks for it to reach your hands, I'm still hoping that BB will come to its senses and finally unlock my apps which would get me a LE.

Nice gesture though. I'm sure someone will appreciate having a Z10 clone for testing. I find it especially useful for WebWorks work where performance can be unpredictable without testing apps on a real device.

Just a thought, since the Alpha would die about 1 month after being delivered, maybe it would be worth trading it and giving that away to someone really worthy. I'm sure some would find it a great motivator to release a quality WebWorks app.

Very generous donation, cool offer. Hope you find someone who will realize what you are sacrificing and will make better use of it.

Re: Dev Alpha B - my spare one is up for grabs

I make extremely good use nof my devices

 

I have picked the 'winner' based on the community input and desire to help others

 

I got a message from one of our friends who said he love it so will do my utmost to get it to him

 

Sorry to all the low point people I only have one spare so it goes to the most useful person I can find

 

Youm know who you are as we're done email today

 

This offer is now closed and I will attempt to get delivery to someone who contributes to our world
