BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha hands on review
Our time with the Dev Alpha was brief – which was probably a good thing, as there wasn't a great deal to take a look at. Usability was limited to browsing the web, making calls and snapping photos. And while the PlayBook's OS looked good on its top-notch 4.2in 1280 x 768 screen, these features will be given a design overhaul for BB10. However, this is indicative of what we can expect in the display department from RIM, as these are the screen specs developers will be building their apps for. That means nary a hint of pixelation, accurate colour reproduction and fantastic viewing angles.
There wasn't much to glean in the spec department, but we know the Dev Alpha packs a rear camera with flash, 16GB of on-board storage, a microSD card slot, mini HDMI-port, as well as the obligatory 3.5mm headphone jack, power key, mic and volume-rocker on the side.
