A sign of platform fragmenation?

- If you're developing for a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device, you need to download the target from the update site.
- If you're developing for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, you need to download a target from the update site that matches the device version that's provided by your wireless service provider. You can verify the device version by opening the Settings app, tapping About, and checking the version that's listed in the OS Version field.

When I read that note from the SDK release notes I start to wonder whether  each BB10 device will run a different OS version?


And then even more confusing is: The link to the Dev Alpha simulator on the Native SDK page is https://developer.blackberry.com/native/downloads/fetch/BlackBerry10Simulator-Installer-BB10_0_09-16...

And the link to the Dev Alpha simulator on the WebWorks page is



So what will be the future one OS to rule them all (devices) or abundance of OSes, devices and lots of incompatibilities fun Smiley Happy
