  • Considering the Dev Alpha is *just* a developer device, it gets us really excited for what the actual first BlackBerry 10 phone will look like. Reading through previous comments on CrackBerry related to the leaked Dev Alpha photos, a lot of you out there would be happy as punch if BlackBerry put out a phone with this hardware as it is in these photos. And looking at the phone in person, it does look pretty nice, with that utility feel of the PlayBook
  • On the subject of size, the device is what I'd call everyday usable big. With a 4.2" display, the Dev Alpha makes the iPhone look tiny, but the Dev Alpha still feels good in the hand compared to some of the other smartphones  out there, which have taken display size a little too far in my opinion (at some point a phone becomes a tablet...). Knowing that developers need to test their apps for given resolutions, one thing we can expect to carry over from the Dev Alpha to the first BlackBerry 10 phone is that awesome display.
    As noted above, RIM made it clear that looks aside, even the underlying guts of the Dev Alpha shouldn't be taken as representative of the first BlackBerry 10 phone. In other words, you can expect an even faster chipset to be powering the BlackBerry 10 phone you buy compared to what's in the Dev Alpha. And we're ok with this. The guts in the Dev Alpha are still pretty solid, so even faster is even better.


Love to hear what you think! Thanks Would make us Smile :)
