Dev Alpha C - Too limited

First off, I don't want to sound ungrateful. I want to thank Blackberry for the Dev Alpha C device, it makes my testing much easier. That being said though, limiting the device as much as you have is also really hindering my development.


My current app needs access to several functions that are not available on the current dev C OS. The major ones being access to the hub, and access to invoke the PDF reader. I updated to the most recent OS, but there's no sign of those features. It makes testing very cumbersome at times and I hope Blackberry will allow access to some of the missing features soon.
