Canadian developers start to receive limited edition BlackBerry Z10
Is there a better way to say thank you to BlackBerry's legion of third party developers? In return for their hard work in getting BlackBerry World decently stocked before the launch of the BlackBerry Z10, the company sent out limited edition units of the BlackBerry Z10 in Fire Engine Red. How appropriate since these code jocks put out the numerous fires that sprung up as BlackBerry tried to populate its re-branded application store with popular titles.

The limited edition BlackBerry Z10 was outed in a tweet from Joey Beechey. No less a BlackBerry executive than CEO Thorsten Heins said that the size of app stores doesn't matter and BlackBerry tried to have the most popular names in BlackBerry World ready for the launch. While 70,000 apps were available by the launch of BlackBerry 10, the news recently has not been good as first Instagram and then Netflix said that they would not offer a native BlackBerry 10 app.

If you love the red BlackBerry Z10 and are not a developer, check around eBay in a few days. We bet you'll find some there.

I would love to have one to. The only one I want is when they close the damn doors and it is a collectors item. Pure garbage operating system and software.

It's pretty in red! I'd also like to see it in cyan and bright yellow and lime and.. Oh wait! that would be like being a Nokia color palette copy-cat! Hahahaha :DD
