Such a device is a nice thing. But I would prefer a real enduser device. I doesn't want to take the effort to port something to a device that acts different to the consumer device.
So, yes I want a dev alpha, but not really.
@helex: I hope you get a playbook! It's a really cool device and I love it :-) I don't use the emulator, but test everything on the device over Wifi. No need to connect it via USB.

I also just read that the PlayBook's going to be updated to BB10?!
Would be nice if they supplied us with alpha/beta versions if that's true
Then the need for special dev devices would be small (only the radio and screen orientation/size and maybe NFC?! should be different).

Research in Motion/BlackBerry should not forget about San Francisco/Silicon Valley. This is where all the passionate devs are. I have at least 10 more apps in different stages of development. Need a device to test them on.
Releasing my first OS7 app soon. More functional and useful Playbook apps coming soon.

A very clever move from BlackBerry. Nokia had pranked the majority of their Qt developers and contributors. If BB provides now good support and a new home for all former Symbian / maemo / MeeGo Harmattan developers I'm sure BB will get soon a fast growing AppStore. A very important argument those days.
I hope I can attend the event in Berlin, germany. It is about 8 hours away for me, but I hope it is worth the trip.

My friend did notice that they are missing the West Coast. I wonder if it's because there are too many iDevs over there?
