A few days ago, we wrote about RIM’s BlackBerry 10 device that is expected to be launched sometime in August this year. Our associate editor, Tyler, wrote about a rumored full touchscreen BlackBerry phone that will be released in the first half of October. Hanging on to the rumor, we just learned that a bunch of photos of a supposed BlackBerry 10 Developer Alpha device has been leaked via CrackBerry Forums, thanks to forum member TRIPPIN who uploaded the images.
The BlackBerry 10 Developer Alpha device is actually the phone that will be sent out to Orlando next week to be used in creating/testing new apps for BlackBerry 10. Unfortunately, it will not go on sale. It’s too bad, because it really looks gorgeous. Also, there are reports that the BlackBerry Developer Alpha is actually the original BlackBerry Colt that didn’t make it out to the market. With both BlackBerry World and BlackBerry Jam just around the corner, it will be interesting to see how RIM will strike back.
