Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

As I promised, I've got the info on DA-C

 

Brand Alliance are messing every one around

 

I will expand on the email presented below - they are not sure when the Cs will arrive, all they know is end of the month is the LATEST. One of the people I talked to today tells me that things can suddenly change, so it's quite possible they will get here before the timeline stated.

 

Expect it to be as they say though as this sounds about right breaing in mind when the LEs started shipping in Canada

 

Once again, I am keeping the contacts hidden so they don't get blamed about something they have no control over

 

They have promised to tell me when they arrive so I'll keep everyone in the loop

 

On a final note - there are two lots of devices going out after the LE batch, some of us are already expecting Cs - I can say neither way which batch the first lot are in - the Portathon kit may be the one discussed below or it may be the lot announced next week (9th April Brand Alliance mail a load more freebies)

 

All names removed apart from my own so they don't get flooded

 

Here you go...

Good Afternoon Simon,

 

Thank you for your positive feedback on ***** ****, it is lovely to hear that ***** has been

so helpful with your enquiries today.

 

I can confirm that as ***** has stated, the Dev Alpha C is not yet in our Warehouse and is not

expected until the end of April.

 

We will keep you informed of any further developments regarding the Dev Alpha C as and when we are

able to.

 

Kind Regards,

 

*******

Re: Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

ok, this is a disaster already. End of April! They promissed to release Q10 in April, at least in Canada and UK. How are we supposed to see if apps are working properly on Q10 if we have no hardware to test (simulator is not a working solution in many cases)

[ Edited ]

I agree

 

All I'm doing is keeping the people NOT to blame out of getting moaned at - they get them when they get them and @brandAlliance have shown them useless in keeping us informed

 

Thank god the nice people I'm in contact with can give us a bit of guidance

 

I know - it's not a perfect solution but my contacts are at least willing to tell us stuff

 

I'm keeping the name private specifically so I get the info as soon as possible

 

Please remember that delivery can only tell me that the DA-Cs are NOT there yet. For all they know they may turn up tomorrow at which point they tell me and I let everyone else know

Re: Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

We're **bleep**ed :smileysad: Technically, it'll start arriving at some point in May (if everything goes ok) + few weeks for messing around customs, FedEx/TNT and in the meantime I'll end up in foreign territory as total stranger and *my* Dev Alpha C will be sent 8000+km far from me - useless as s*** :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

Would you prefer zero info or proper info?

 

Bran Alliance do the former, at least the people I talk to are honest with us

 

******** are to thank for letting us know

Re: Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

Thanks for this informations.

Please keep us informed !

 

 

I think Blackberry can do it differently, they know we must have Dev alpha before Q10 launch so maybe can they send devices themself ?

Why didn't they sent them from Canada via UPS/TNT directly ?

Please keep sharing the information

Re: Dev Alpha C - EMEA delivery schedule

I don't see it as bad news

 

I see it as news

 

My contact @ delivery promises to keep me informed

 

I know this is not a perfect solution but my efforts at least give us information we don't have

 

***** get a big bunch of devices with all out names then send them to us

 

Brand Alliance are at fault for not keeping us in the loop

 

If I told you the name of the delivery company they would be flooded with phone and emails

 

This would stop me getting info hence my privacy over the subject

 

All I can tell you without Q is that ******* don't have them yet but ****** has promised to tell me when they come in

 

I wish I could tell you more - don't have the info yet

 

Soon as it hits my inbox I tell everyone else

 

If anyone has worked out who I'm talking to PLEASE don't say - it's easy to work out who they are if you do analysis, if you did that my information flow would most likely stop (bad for everyone)

 

I've built up a nice little working relationship with ***** so lets keep it friendly

 

If you wanna take it out on someone, do @brandAlliance
