BlackBerry Releases Dev Alpha C Device for Developers
Previously known as RIM, BlackBerry is preparing BB10 devices as its last shot at survival. The company recently said that demand is surpassing expectations after the official launch of BlackBerry 10 OS. BlackBerry now moves forward by seeding the QWERTY-equipped Dev Alpha C model to developers.
The phone will aid them in designing and developing their apps for proper keyboard- and touch-based experience. It’s believed that the phone is based on an upcoming consumer release version, specifically the BlackBerry 10. The Q10 may become available a bite later, perhaps in Q2 2013, depending on carrier support and geographical location.
The phone is equipped with 3.1” (720 x 720) display, which delivers 328ppi of pixel density. With the rather unusual rectangle-shaped screen resolution, apps designed for longer displays may need to be recompiled to work better on the Q10. This could be the reason behind the release of Dev Alpha C model.
