    Default Sim Slot on Dev Alpha C?

    I've searched everywhere looked at a million pictures but none of them seem to reveal a sim slot like we had on the Dev A.

    During the Jam in Europe i attended a session were we received a Dev C, I managed to snap some pics and started looking for a sim slot immideatly unfortunatelly wasnt able to find any kind of slot or opening on the plastic body of the Dev C.

    So my question, does anyone out there have a clue if we will be able to enter sims into our Dev C when they start shipping.

    I'm pretty sure the battery door comes off and the sim slot would be under there.

    That was the issue, these Dev Devices they displayed and which we received were one piece of plastic material that was kinda moled around the device.

    There wasnt any kind of opening or spaces showing a way to open it.

    So the dev alpha A (the first one) did have a "Slot" for the sim chip like the iphone. But every other blackberry device has had a batter cover that pops out where the sim and sd micro memory goes (as well as the batter of course)

    I would bet that they haven't gone back to the original design.

    Always had more then 1 BlackBerry device just not to miss any action so think im gonna continue that trend with the Z10 and Q10 Both great devices.

    We also need to keep in mind that there's still devices doen the road for 2013 so really wonder if it will only get better or if it will just be lower end devices like the curve series.

    There is definatly some room for that 10" Playbook :-D

    Default Confirmed Sim Slot

    I can confirm there is a sim card slot, as others have indicated it is under the back case. There is also micro sd card slot.

    No offense, but if your z10 took the pictures, then that is bad for blackberry, because those pictures aren't very good.

    Lol that cannot be taken with z10. Z10 camera shots under low lighting is amazing

    Attached is a shot I took at a bar which was rather dark after midnight

    As others have said, SIM slot is under the battery door, you need to remove the battery to get to it. microSD card slot is also under the battery door, but you do NOT have to remove the battery to get to it.

    Sith, what size of sim does it take? I've got a full size one and one in an iPhone 5 (whatever size it is).
