With the Blackberry Dev Alpha A and B devices aimed at developers who are developing mainly for the Blackberry Z10, it is understandable as to why it was a full touchscreen device. However as you know, Blackberry has plans to release the Q10 as well which is basically Blackberry 10 running on a QWERTY device reminiscent of the Bold 9900, with the difference being in the keyboard layout which is straighter. In any case for developers looking to develop for the Q10, Blackberry has unveiled the Dev Alpha C device (pictured above), which is basically the Q10 except in a more rectangular-ish body.
It won’t be available for non-developers, but hey if you were curious as to the sort of devices developers have to work with in order to churn out apps for your Blackberry 10 devices, now you know! For developers to qualify to get their hands on the Dev Alpha C, they must have an app already in the Blackberry World, or at the very least submit an app within the next two weeks in order to show your interest in the device.
