Re: how to obtain blackberry 10 dev alpha device?

Is there some other way to get the Alpha Device so we can test on a device instead of the simulator?

Hi arthurlyssenko,

 

Welcome to the Forums, regarding the Simulator, I'm posting here a link with some instructons to improve performance, this might help.

 

Make sure you have virtualization enabled in your CPU, this will give a significantly performance boost on your simulator, hope this improve your overall experience with it.

Unfortunately no .. Only by participating in a 10 BB Jam you have the opportunity to receive it. Try however to hear the evangelist in your area. Smiley Wink

It doesn't make sense...not all developers can go in place to get a developer device...

You have to prove it that you want it so much ;-)

I guess only limited number of them exist.

25 places x 200 attendees = 5000 devices
