BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Device Rings When You Call It!

IMG_0003 (2)

Apparently the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device is more than just a “mini-PlayBook”. It has phone hardware inside. Each Alpha came with an AT&T micro-sim card and a pre-assigned phone number. If you call it, it rings. There’s no phone software on the device, so you can’t answer the call, but it’s good to know this is more than just a blank slate for the UI. Scrid, I’ll stop calling your Alpha now. You never answer, anyway.

  1. I haven’t seen any sim card inside. Did i miss something!!!

    Plus, it also lets we adding Email account but for nothing. LOL

  2. One of the things they should really work on the BlackBerry 10 devices is the boot time – it takes too long to boot up.

    • if i dont need to reboot after each app install/update than the boot time isnt so much of a deal breaker for me.

    • Bear in mind that the Dev Alpha still thinks it’s a PlayBook – it runs a modified version of the PlayBook OS. So the release version won’t be anything like this.

  3. I love it …. What a perfect excuse not to talk to someone …. Ring ring, lol!!

  4. Apparently you can answer the calls by pairing your dev alpha with a blue tooth headset. I haven’t tried it myself yet however I’ve heard of others doing it.

  5. guys,maybe i will attend bb jam in india.but how do i get the alpha device……i have 2 apps app store(not much usefull apps)…anyway so can i get one if i go to bb 10 jam
