BB10 Dev Alpha Device - Loose part sound

Hi there,


I got my brand new BB10 Dev Alpha Device at Montréal Jam yesterday. I was testing some things out on it when I notice a strange ticking sound when gently hitting the front or back of the device, near the top.


It sounds like there is a loose part in it, near the "ear speaker". I just wonder if anyone else have similar issues with their device or is it just mine?


And quick remark while I'm at it : I hope RIM changes the design for the SIM card tray, had a hard time getting it out.


Thanks for your help!

I also noticed that sound, I thought it was the sim card tray, btw, the removal of the sim card tray is fine for me, just as easy as on the iphone 4 :-P, but at least on the dev alpha it doesn't sticks out
