Dev Alpha C to Limited Edition

I just got the email for Dev Alpha C redemption.

 

What happens now if I want to trade it in for the Limited Edition?

 

I somehow need the Alpha Dev phone's pin, which I won't have until it arrives. And the deadline seems to be today.

 

What to do?

Just wait. Seems like they'll extend the deadlines for those who'll get devices from community/last chance portathons.

Terribly awesome would be Alpha C --> Q10 LE, but awesome nonetheless Alpha C --> Z10 LE

Re: Dev Alpha C to Limited Edition

I've read that todays deadline is just for submitting the qualifying app, not to register for the tradeup program.

 

That's a relief!

Re: Dev Alpha C to Limited Edition

There "should" be enough Z10 LE (I believe 12500 units) to cover all the Dev Alpha trade ins  (9000 Dev Alphas + 1500 Dev Alpha C). 

 

However given that there will be only 1500 Dev Alpha Cs, wouldn't it be better for you to keep it and use it to test Q10 (keyboard) based apps? Plus, it would be more "limited" than the Z10 LE.

Re: Dev Alpha C to Limited Edition

True, but in my case:
A) It doesn't have full functionallity like the LE, and
B) I desperately need a new phone, I'm living in the stoneage with my barely alive 9300

Re: Dev Alpha C to Limited Edition

All it would be nice, but I believe it is only ONE LE device per developer so...

 

What's the odds will will make a special run for a Q10 LE?
