Re: Blackberry Development Phones

No, RIM does not offer anything like that direct to developers. As I understand it, depending on your level within the RIM ISV Alliances program, you get a certain number of free devices plus access to loaner devices as needed.


If you're developing commercial applications for BlackBerry, it's in your best interest to join the program. Besides devices, you get developer support as well.
