Question to BlackBerry : Testing on devices vs SDK version

How are we/you going to manage testing on Dev Device or even the real devices with the various SDK versions.

For example, I got the Z10 LE, and my provider tends to be a little slow on updating OSes. So I'll probably be unable to test the latest SDK changes on my Device.


Are there any plans on letting devs load up a beta or other versions of the OS outside of the carrier?


I'd like to update my app to use the latest 10.1 SDK but if I can't test it, how will I know it works?



Current apps:
-BBOS 10-
MaxxTransit - Coming soon

Right now you can only do this using simulators.  You can download a BlackBerry 10 Simulator for each OS that has been released to a carrier.  Use the other versions link on the simulator download page.
