BlackBerry manufacturer RIM (Research In Motion) has announced to release first Smartphone with BlackBerry 10 OS in the fourth quarter of current year. The company is simultaneously working on the design and application development. The images of BlackBerry 10 Alpha Developer device have been posted by a user named Trippin on CrackBerry forums.
The first BlackBerry Alpha Developer device is specially meant for the software developers to create, load and test applications on it.The device looks are very appealing as it seems to be a compressed PlayBook tablet without any home button. Its design and appearance is also very close to that of PlayBook. One should note that this model is just an Alpha Development testing device and not a commercial unit. The design of the original device with BlackBerry 10 OS will be totally different from this testing device. Since most of the Smartphones are offering capacitive home or menu buttons, so one thing worth pondering is whether RIM will add a physical home button on it or not. RIM has not announced a particular date to launch first Blackberry 10 based device.
