Developers at the BlackBerry Jam Conference in Amsterdam will be walking out with at least one cool new gadget: a limited edition red BlackBerry Z10 with a developer-specific inscription behind the battery door. This red delicious is quite the looker, and is available to developers who submitted an app for the Z10’s launch window, which was before January 21st. There are only 12,000 of these red beauties, so they will certainly be highly-coveted within specific circles.
Both the front and back are painting the town red, though the finish is glossy to the retail Z10’s matte black features. I’m loving the look of the red Z10 and think I will try to get my hands on one.
Media is also getting a hands-on with the new Dev Alpha C device, which will become available in the coming months as developers adjust their apps to work on the 1:1 ratio 720×720 screen of the BlackBerry Q10. The Dev Alpha C may not be pretty — it’s boxy in the same way as the Alpha and Alpha B devices were — but it’s meant to do a job, and it comes with that excellent fretted QWERTY keyboard.
Being the release of the BlackBerry Z10 today in Canada, we can’t help but be excited for all these BB-related developments.
