RIM will be seeing an updated version of the BlackBerry Dev Alpha hardware to developers this fall in a quest to improve the overall user experience. According to two tweets sent by the official BlackBerryDev account, the improvements will be subtle — a relocated microSIM slot and a slightly new design — but the phone’s looks resemble the Nokia Lumia 900.
We had a chance to see some of what BlackBerry 10 could do earlier in the year, and we’re extremely excited about the finished product which is expected in early 2013.
The device that will be seeded to developers is being referred to as Dev Alpha B, though we’re not sure whether that will be the finished name come September.
What do you think of the updated design? Could it be that is what the first BlackBerry 10 device will look like?
