    Just like a lot of software companies, phone companies will give a select group of people 'beta' versions of phones for real world testing to work out any bugs before they are released to the public.

    Employees of RIM and companies that design software for them as well as product and OS testers for the company. They release devices to testers so they can test the functionality and durability of the devices in the real world.

    If you are an alliance partner of RIM you can get these. Home - partners.blackberry.com

    The lowest tier costs $2,000 and you have a bunch of obligations though.
