Finally received the device!

Ukraine

 

I recommend everyone to update firmware at first.

DAC doesn't see and doesn't update firmware automatically.

Re: Post Here When You Get Your Dev Alpha C

There is no program right now where you can get a Dev Alpha C, but there could be such a program in the future. I wouldn't say that it is likely but it is possible.

Re: Post Here When You Get Your Dev Alpha C

Most were given to developers who had submitted a certain number of qualifying apps for BlackBerry 10.

No, DAC was given to 1500 developers with most apps submited and to 1500 attendees of BB Jam Europe.

Re: Post Here When You Get Your Dev Alpha C

There were actually several ways you get your hands on a DAC. For example you could get one if you submitted apps for the Q10 and you went to the Jam in Amsterdam. Another way was to be one of the lucky few (1500 to be precise) who had enough points to qualify. You could earn points depending on the number of apps you had in BlackBerry World, or how many BFB apps, the technology used for the apps also gave different points. When the program ended ( a couple of months ago) the points were counted until then.

But now, there are no ways to get your hands on any DAC afaik. I follow the programs rather closely, and haven't seen any. Maybe they will do some other programs in the future, but nothing is set in stone for now I think. You could follow the Developer Blog, that's where they officially announce these things.


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

Re: Post Here When You Get Your Dev Alpha C

It seems I have to correct myself. You can get your hands on a DAC, but it's rather a long shot because it's through a competition where you can win one. But if you really want a DAC for testing purpose you can always try your luck.
