Re: Last Chance Port-a-Thon Device Draw

I also think you can trade the DA up for the Z10 LE. As far as I know your app should only have been submitted before a certain date (which I can't remember). But if you have participate in the Last Chance Port-A-Thon that should be the case :-)

(Some people are even wondering if they can trade up the DA C for the Z10 LE: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-10-Limited-Edition/LE-for-Dev-Alpha-C/m-p/2310901#...


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

Re: Last Chance Port-a-Thon Device Draw

You can't trade up until you get the dev alpha device, as you need the pin of the phone to qualify, plus an app that meets the LE Trade Up criteria.

Re: Last Chance Port-a-Thon Device Draw

If it meets the LE Trade Up criteria then sure.

 

I personally used a WebWorks app.. and it was accepted.

 

FAQ https://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/blackberry10devalpha/devalpha_limitededition_faq.html

 

This is what it says about qualifying - 

 

3. Application Criteria.

3.1 Applications must provide a functionality that is considered useful to the end user, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion. However, the following categories of applications are specifically excluded from eligibility for the Offer:

  • (a) Web launchers or shortcuts;
  • (b) Web browsers;
  • (c) Applications that provide a simple, single function, such as playing noise or displaying a graphic; and,
  • (d) Applications that already exist for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet that will work, as is, with the BlackBerry 10 operating system without any changes, modifications or other revisions

(collectively, an “Excluded Application”).

 

3.2 For the purposes of the Offer, if the Sponsor feels that the number of Applications in any given category appears to be excessive, the Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right to refuse to consider any further Applications submitted in that category.

Re: Last Chance Port-a-Thon Device Draw

It also says -
Do applications developed using the BlackBerry App Generator qualify?
Although the BlackBerry App Generator is a great tool and we fully support its use and intention, users of that tool do not need a Dev Alpha device to produce an app, and so those applications do not qualify.

The deadline is for the apps to be submitted to qualify for this. If you have an app from Last Chance or Community etc you can provide details and use it as your entry for this trade up deal.
