Not dead yet: BlackBerry to hand out more Developer Alpha devices this summer
RIM will be handing out more this summer, advising those interested to watch for promotions. The developer's handset is the same one that is being used internally to help build the first BlackBerry 10 powered devices, and when they were first handed out at BlackBerry World last month, some critics actually reviewed the device as though it was the first BB10 handset for the public.
The fact that Saunder is even talking like it's business as usual at RIM could be a front to prop up the stock, or even a bid to get more favorable terms in a buy out. It could simply mean that yes, it is business as usual for the company as they race to get BlackBerry 10 launched before the grim reaper shuts the doors for good at RIM. One last thought. While RIM did tease some of the new features of BlackBerry 10 a couple of months ago, shouldn't they be rushing out some videos to whet the appetite of current Berry users who are dying for a reason to stick with the platform?
