*UPDATE* – It seems RIM has pulled the render off of their site. Could it have been a glimpse at the limited edition device RIM will give to developers who successfully have a BB10 app approved? We may never know.

Surfing the BlackBerry developers website, you will notice a banner in the carousel advertising the new BlackBerry 10 Native SDK for Windows. The BlackBerry 10 Native SDK includes everything you need to start developing apps for the BlackBerry 10 platform: compiler, linker, C/C++ libraries, and an extensive IDE.

What’s odd about the banner is it shows a 3D rendering of a BlackBerry 10 ‘Dev Alpha B’. Perhaps this is a second generation developer device we’ll see RIM introduce to do further seeding of BB10 development? It is unclear. What do you think the Dev Alpha B could be?
