BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha hands on review
So, the Dev Alpha is more like a miniature PlayBook – complete with the rubberised matte back panel.
We were told developers do not need the BB10 platform running on the Dev Alpha in order to create content for the new OS. So, this is not what the BB10 OS will look like and the slick hardware is more of a test phone as opposed to a veritable prototype. So while we can expect similarities performance-wise, it's probably best not to get too excited about the slick hardware – it's likely it'll never make it into your hands.
