BlackBerry 10 Developer Alpha phone spotted

Is it the next iPhone? Nope, this is a glimpse of BlackBerry’s touchscreen future phone strategy

Don’t get excited about buying this slice of touchscreen smartphonery, because this is a developer-only phone. But it’s the BlackBerry 10 Developer Alpha set to be distributed to BB10 app devs at BlackBerry Jam next week in Orlando, Florida.

Dug up in the forums of CrackBerry, we’re seeing a phone that’s seemingly modelled on the PlayBook’s stylings, and it should give us a clue as to what to expect from a headline BlackBerry 10 handset to be outed later this year.

There are no details on spec, but we’d expect those to change ahead of a public release anyway. We’re excited to see a new look in the pipeline that could reignite BlackBerry’s fading smartphone limelight.
