Developers can now download BlackBerry OS 10.3.2 Beta autoloaders

With BlackBerry 10.3.2 being tested through the BlackBerry Beta Zone, BlackBerry has now taken the next step and made the 10.3.2 beta autoloaders available for developers as well. Interestingly enough though they are a version behind what is being offered in the Beta Zone. Software version 10.3.2.159 is what's available through the autoloaders while Beta Zone is offering software version 10.3.2.304. In any case, BlackBerry has outlined what developers need to know about these autoloaders.

Miss BerryFlow live last night? Well, get yourself caught up. You catch the replay of the video as well as download the audio right now. While we tried to keep this one short, we totally blew it BUT we had a lot to talk about apparently. The BlackBerry Leap is here, a new BBM beta has arrived, we discuss some great native apps on the way (one being here today) as well as the BlackBerry Oslo, so dig in. We got a little ranty, but it's all love.

BlackBerry -Leap-Closer

Last week we ran a poll asking if you would be buying the BlackBerry Leap. The results were pretty much as I expected, as you can see below, with the vast majority of voters going for the 'no' option. As I said then, I suspect that most CrackBerry readers are after top of the range devices and who can blame them. But I'm still certain that the BlackBerry Leap has it's place in the market.

ShopBlackBerry hosting BlackBerry 10 device sale!

If you're looking to pick up a new BlackBerry 10 device for a little bit cheaper than normal, you might want to head on over to ShopBlackBerry as it would seem as though they're having a bit of a spring sale on BlackBerry 10 smartphones wherein you can save up-to 40%.

The prices listed above are the US pricing but the devices are also on sale in all regions served by ShopBlackBerry though the prices arguably are not as good as the US pricing. That said, you won't find any of the Porsche Design devices or the still fresh BlackBerry Leap but on sale but that's the way it is.

Table-Top-Racing-Hero

It's been a while since Amazon have had a 'free app of the day' that I've felt compelled to share with you. That changed today when I saw that they were featuring Table Top Racing. It's not a game that I've played before, but I'm a sucker for this style, so I grabbed my BlackBerry Z30 and downloaded it with haste.

EE-Passport-Hero

Possibly a harsh title, but as far as I can see it must be true, looking at the evidence. The guilty party is EE. Don't get me wrong - I'm a fan of the company, in fact I'm a customer and have no plans to change that. But it frustrates me how I see them either not offering BlackBerry smartphones as an option to customers - or pricing them so high that it makes sense to choose another device.
