Hi there BB Developer Forums,
When our team first started developing for Blackberry (porting from Android), we didn't have any Blackberry devices and were enticed, like many others, at the idea of receiving a Playbook. But, in order to receive a Playbook we needed to submit the application first without being able to test it on the actual device. We actually released and received over 400 downloads within the first two days only to realize that the accelerometer had actually been switched and therefore the game was doing the opposite of what it was supposed to. We really don't want this to happen again, but weren't able to make it to the conference in Orlando. We now have two applications on the market which we want to upgrade to BB 10 but can't do it without a device, is there any way that we can get one?
Thanks a million for the help!

Don't worry, there should soon be a contest where they will give out the BlackBerry 10 devices in exchange of you developing an app for it :-)
Let's hope you're right

There has been no announcement to date. If there is then you will hear it from the Developer Blog first:
Your best option would be to watch the blog feed and forums for any notice of BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha devices being made available.

Sorry for putting this question here but i didnt want to open a new question!
I am really interesting in developing for the Blackberry 10 , because i dont live in USA, ( i live in Greece) i am not able to come to any BlackBerry World conferences. Is this any way that i can get my hands to any of the new Blackberries, borrowed or buy in lowest price (the existing devices) , or buy the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha from Blackberry?
Thank you in advance for your time!
