We'd heard that RIM would be distributing BlackBerry 10 alpha devices to developers at the BlackBerry Jam conference this May, and we may have gotten our first look at the hardware. A member of the Crackberry Forums has posted images of a slate-style phone with a handsome, PlayBook-inspired feel to it. The phone is said to be an early development device, but whether it will end up bearing any aesthetic similarity to what developers actually take home next month still remains to be seen. As for BlackBerry 10's chances of solving RIM's recent financial woes... well, that is another matter altogether.
