Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

This is just speculation but I'm expecting it to be like the Dev Alpha B. Pretty much the real thing except for ugly casing and 1GB RAM instead of 2GB.

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

TheMarco is probably right.
As far as I know there is no real documentation yet on what the specs are of this device.

Dev Alpha C mails are being sent out to the developers, so as soon as the first are received we will have some more information on the specs, they will probably be posted on this forum somewhere.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

Yeah.. Its probably going to be very similar to the final Q10 except the casing... The Q10 will be much more sleek compared to the DA C.

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

It is important to remember it is a developer testing device and not a polished demo or production device.

They are app testing devices. They do not have production software on them.

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

The difference would be merely in the apperance and final OS version and some added/preinstalled application on actual Q10 device.

Most probably it would be... but we can also expect to have some updates in the meantime. And also as they launched Z10 with some more apps which were not there in the Dev Alpha.

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

Do you mean v10.1? I speculate it is not. BlackBerry can't release 10.1 just two months after the release of v10.

Or can they?

Re: Differences between Dev Alpha C and Production Q10

I would assume Dev Alpha C would at least have the same OLED screen as Q10.
