    I'd rank the likelihood of this low.

    First of all, all hackers know what the string "1337" means, at this point it's usually a joke.

    Secondly, it's utterly trivial to spoof a browser USER-AGENT string. (Not using the stock BlackBerry 10 browser, though you could do this with another browser or by using a web proxy)

    Third, I was under the impression that by the time a "10.3" would come out, BlackBerry was going to re-brand/re-sequence the whole thing anyway.
    Totally true, and with os 7.0 or bellow, we were able to input our own agent on the browser, I had my set as an iphone because lots of website wasn't set to handle blackberry properly (with BlackBerry some site was directing us the desktop version but with iphone it was always mobile site). I wish I could do that with my bb10.

    You can with 3rd party apps such as "Evolution Browser" in BlackBerry world.

    I think having both of them is very handy.

    Example: The Yelp website's stupid browser sniffing script ignores BlackBerry 10 and assumes it's a desktop client, and serves it a page which is nearly useless on a handheld device. This is particularly annoying because Yelp never wrote a dedicated app for BlackBerry 10.

    Solution: Use Evolution Browser, set user-agent to either "iPhone" or "Android", and Yelp's webpage works as well as it does on any other mobile device.

    Evolution also has an ad-blocking feature (sorely lacking on most mobile platforms, and mobile is where that feature is even more critical than on desktop, IMHO), among other things.

    For the $3 or whatever he is asking, I think it's more than worth it.

    Once again, all that signifies is that some webserver somewhere saw something access a webpage and present that string of text as the browsers USER-AGENT value.

    This is something that is easily faked, as discussed previously in this thread.

    The latest I have on any of my surveillance (various sites around the net that I run) is 10.2.1.1940, and those sites are set up to specifically try to verify that it really is a BlackBerry device and hasn't been tampered with on the user agent side. (There are ways to do that ;-) )

    I use User Agent Switcher in Firefox all the time (desktop) to test web site rendering over multiple platforms and to test mobile redirects. Don't have much of a need for it on my device, but it is quite useful to spoof pages for testing purposes.

    Considering it'll be October before we see 10.3 officially, I'll wager a 10.3 leak is right around the corner.

    Here's to more BB10 fragmentation a la Google

    I'm skeptical also, but you think the browser header can be fake?
    Give me an OS number and I'll post comments using my whole new fake OS
