BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update reveals new name for BlackBerry App World
Remember those free BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha handsets that RIM was giving away to potential developers? The OS has received a new update, to version 10.0.9.1103, which can be received via an OTA update, or via the Windows launcher. The new update re-brands BlackBerry App World as BlackBerry World, and the applications store now supports payments for apps and games including in-app purchases. The BlackBerry Hub placeholder is now available following the update, and when you turn on Development mode, notification is sent to the hub and an indicator light starts flashing. The update also brings changes to the UI and the size of application icons.

Some of the known issues that have popped up on BlackBerry 10.0.0 Development Alpha B include the handset entering sleep mode when sharing a web page using NFC, audio problems when connecting the handset to another device using an HDMI cable, and the inability of the device to connect to the 3G network after booting up.  Other problems range from clipped audio to the inability of the device to save new time settings.

We're sure that all of these little problems will be worked out by the time BB10 is introduced January 30th. In the meantime, RIM is offering those creating apps with the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device a chance to trade it in for a limited edition BlackBerry 10 handset.You can also register for a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha C model.
