As we all know by now, RIM is giving out a limited number of BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Developer phones to attendees of the BlackBerry 10 JAM this week. We’ve seen tons of photos of the device in the past few days, so now we’re going to take a look at the actual device specs and content.
The Dev Alpha looks exactly like a mini-PlayBook tablet. It has the same feel as the PlayBook but with a slightly different configuration. The Dev Alpha’s cameras have been shifted so that the device functions primarily in portrait mode. The device is running the core OS of BlackBerry 10, meaning the speed, functionality, and usability of BlackBerry 10 is all there. The one thing you’ll notice; however, is that the Dev Alpha OS doesn’t look like what we saw Thorsten Heins present at the keynote. That’s because this unit is running BlackBerry 10 skinned over with the PlayBook UI. Head past the break for more on the Dev Alpha, including the full specs.
