@Jarviser said "There is no such thing as an internal beta."
Funny that. That is a term a BB employee used when talking to me. Semantics aside, BB has not released a Beta to anyone outside the company for the Z10 prior to releasing the latest update. I suspect the same is true for the BB10 coming to the PlayBook.
It does not surprise me that a team who don't understand beta testing would pass that misinformation to you.
The wiki definition below is one I have understood for many years in software development. Note the words "external" "out side the team" and "public" and "users"
Beta testing comes after alpha testing and can be considered a form of external user acceptance testing. Versions of the software, known as beta versions, are released to a limited audience outside of the programming team. The software is released to groups of people so that further testing can ensure the product has few faults or bugs. Sometimes, beta versions are made available to the open public to increase the feedback field to a maximal number of future users.

Unfortunately, anything Wiki is far from authoritative. I can find another definition which differs from the one at Wiki and does not involve the element of "external to the company":
Wiki goes to great pains to make it quite clear that their goal is to be informative rather than authoritative. This is also why Wiki material cannot be referenced in academic circles.
This is the last post I will be making on the subject as it is departing from the point of the thread.
