Is there some other way to get the Alpha Device so we can test on a device instead of the simulator?

Hi arthurlyssenko,

 

Welcome to the Forums, regarding the Simulator, I'm posting here a link with some instructons to improve performance, this might help.

 

Make sure you have virtualization enabled in your CPU, this will give a significantly performance boost on your simulator, hope this improve your overall experience with it.

Unfortunately no .. Only by participating in a 10 BB Jam you have the opportunity to receive it. Try however to hear the evangelist in your area. :smileywink:

It doesn't make sense...not all developers can go in place to get a developer device...

You have to prove it that you want it so much ;-)

I guess only limited number of them exist.

25 places x 200 attendees = 5000 devices
