If you’ve been a member of the BlackBerry Beta Zone, you may want to keep a keen eye for an email detailing a new program. The new Beta Zone program will supposedly let you test ‘pre-release BlackBerry products’. Check out the email getting sent to members:
We’re excited to announce that in the near future we will be initiating an exciting new beta program for BlackBerry 10 devices! Based on your participation in past betas you look like you would be a good ﬁt for the upcoming program. If you are interested in participating in a beta program on your BlackBerry 10 device please take this quick survey to indicate you’re interested and to help us select individuals who are suitable candidates to participate.
- What kind of beta is this? – This beta will focus on pre—release BlackBerry products. It will require the use of your BlackBerry 10 smartphone in order to be eligible to participate. Participants will be expected to engage in regular activities such as software upgrades, sharing feedback, and submitting bug reports.
- What happens if I am selected? – lf you are selected to participate we will contact you with more information about next steps. Only those who are selected will be contacted.
It’s worthy to note that you will need your existing BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which likely rules out the possibility the program extends to pre-release devices. We’ve heard that BlackBerry will be opening a public beta of BlackBerry Blends in the next coming weeks, which may be included as one of these ‘pre-release’ products.
