02 August 2012 - Some inquisitive BlackBerry users noticed that a rendering of the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha looked a little different compared to those handed out since May.

RIM has been known to make multiple versions of internal development devices and the Canadian firm quickly pulled the image.
Speculation raged and questions were asked so RIM responded. Via its Twitter account, RIM says that there will be a "minor hardware bump" made to the Dev Alpha model in what it calls "a normal part of any pre-release programme"
Physically, RIM specified that microSIM placement had been changed.
Currently, the Dev Alpha features a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 pixels display, 1GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 inside.
The updated version is supposedly called the Dev Alpha B and RIM has confirmed that it will be giving updated version of the phone prior to the BB10 launch. And online sources are reporting that will happen at an in-house developer event held by BlackBerry that will take place September 25-27 in San Jose, California.
