Hello good fellow member of wonderfull development community!
Came accross another phone provider developer portal (nok*a) and i'm quite amazed with their service of providing developer with scheeduled remote access for developer to test their app / game on a real device, yes they are limited access but that is so much helpfull
I could not have my hand on a dev alpha c because the country regulation (Indonesia) do not allow me to receive a dev alpha c, if it is possible for blackberry to provide such service(remote dev alpha access) for developer, that would be a very big resouce arsenal
Cheers! and developer!

Nope, a real live physical devices, yes, there might be limitation to testing which is related with the device's position and orientation, but it could be done.
I'm suggesting this merely because some bug that i could not reproduce on the simulator, say my game is running very well on the simulator, but users reports that there are some bugs on the real device, this would greatly help.
Bb is very generous, actively giving the developer free devices for the development purpose, even thousands of free devices was given. If 100 device was provided for the remote access, and developer have 3h worth of booking time/accessing the device, that would help 100 * (24 / 3) = 800 developers per day..
Thanks for reading this thread, and please spread the suggestion, as BB will always listen to suggestion they said

Another possibility is to find a developer with the device you don't have. I would be willing to test using my DAC in exchange for feedback on a Z10.
Perhaps this has been suggested in other boards.
