Blackberry Dev Alpha
The Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha device operating system was updated to version earlier this morning. We were lucky enough to download the latest version via OTA direct from the device.

A relatively simple process, download took approximately 25-30 mins where the installation file was 487MB in size.

Installation did not take more than 10 minutes so the upgrade process was flawless and within very reasonable timescales. It also restored the existing data as it should. Have a look at the screenshots below of the upgrade steps..

Just a few small cosmetic updates we found straight up from the homescreen that we noticed as the Blackberry Dev Alpha booted to the mail menu screen..

All icons are now slighted rounded on the edges and look much sharper

Icons changed (Browser/Calender/BBM)

Blackberry App World now renamed to Blackberry World

Settings icon now appears as a seperate icon, previously it was on a menu that had to be swiped downwards from the top

Blackberry Messenger

Blackberry Messenger 10
Unfortunately Blackberry Messenger would not open for now..
During the photo screenshots the Blackberry Messenger 10 would not want to load up during this time and get spinning with the Opening BBM sign, we will try a reboot later on and see what happens..

Active Screens

The Blackberry OS10 Active Screens feature looked faster and more fluid. Only dissapointing thing is that it would not display active screens. For example, it would be interesting the see the youtube video running in its own window, while the BBM screen was actively showing at the same time, now that would be a cool thing to have!

Blackberry App World 10 App Storefront
Blackberry Appworld now renamed to Blackberry World. We believe this is due to the fact that Apps, Music, Video and Films are also for sale in this 'device store'. Making it not just for apps but for everything else too..

Apps List BB10
The Blackberry 10 World now has updated apps released by developers up until september. All other apps are now doe to be released in January after the final release.

Festive Offer for users in India
For a limited time once again RIM have been generous to offer free premium apps to Blackberry users in India.

BBIN announced the free apps a few days ago that for the users in India some chargeable apps were now free!

So if you havent already started downloading now is the best time to download some if not all the free apps, you can always delete the apps from your device once you have downloaded them and reinstall them back at the later date as long as you still have access to your Blackberry AppWorld account!

Here is the list of apps currently downloadable for free..
