I'm nearing the final stages of my BlackBerry Smartphone App development and I want to get some real hands on testing on a variety of BlackBerry devices.
I have a Bold 9900, and access to a 9350 Curve but I'd really like to see how my app behaves on Storm, Tour, Style, Torch or Pearl (e.g. different screen sizes, OS 5.0+ versions etc.)
I've used the simulators and so far things seem good, but I'd hate to release my app and find that it isn't really as easy to use as I thought.
Thus my question is... are there any developers out there with an "extra" device they'd be willing to share? or loan out for a few days for some testing?
Likewise if RIM has any options for gaining access to some physical devices at a discount I'd appreciate any info.
PS - I don't need anything special in terms of full phone functionality (I can live without GPS, NFC, Accelerometer, Phone calls, etc.) I just want to be able to load my app (a game) and play it.
PPS - I'm in the Toronto/GTA area... and thus I'd be willing to drive to most of Southern Ontario to pickup/dropoff a device.
