    I was searching BlackBerry Z10 on Instagram and I found this!?
    It looks pretty big compared to my Z10 and if you see the sticker it says that the sim card is in a tray on the side which no BlackBerry has that i know of?
    This might be the Aristo?

    That's the Dev Alpha A. It's big on his hands but not so big with the watch strap. The guy simply has small hands.

    It's the opposite effect when compared to Mr. Big Hands making the Z10 look like a box of tic-tacs.

    That's neither a Dev alpha or the z10 look at where the volume rocker is positioned looks like half way down and the back looks similar to the Z10 back, I'm guessing Aristo/Astro...nice nonetheless

    Also note how it suggests to pull out the sim tray, not telling you to take the cover off.

    Yea that's no dev alpha A. That my friends is the rumored Aristo BlackBerry phablet. The specs are ridiculous. This is the true flagship whereas Z10 is not.

    Exactly what i was saying, it cant be a z10 because of the tray diagram. Alot of views on the post and not much comments so i figured it was a dev alpha since i never had one even thought i would take the dev C in a heartbeat!

    The position of the volume makes sense if that is the big 4.3" device rumored (aka Aristo?). You should be still able holding it from the bottom to use your thumb (one hand use) to control it

    I don't know what it is but I don't think it is any larger than a z10.

    I measured the volume rockers and the length of the device. They are in the same proportion that they are on a Z10: roughly 4.25 to 1.

    Of course, my conclusion assumes that the rockers are the same size on the mystery device that they are on a Z10. FWIW the rockers on the Playbook are the same size as they are on the Z10 so bigger device does not mean bigger rockers.

    I am about 99.99999999999999999999999% confident that is a Dev Alpha A. That is the same texture backside, the volume rockers are the same, same logo placement, same camera shape/placement...Dev Alpha A. And yes, the SIM card slot is the same as too. That phone pictured is the Dev Alpha A

    Dev Alpha A is the only device with a non removeable back door. Original code named colt. BlackBerry would be stupid to go the non removeable route and designated the colt to a dev device that is why the Dev Alpha a is the only production level design take note of the "Hidden" look of the Dev Alpha B and C versions. The housing is meant to conceal the production housing for employees.

    I wouldn't be looking to see any aristo leaks until BlackBerry even mentions their next product launch. ( March 21st anyone?) and even if they announce another time line for their next devices you can safely assume the ARISTO won't be announced until closer to Christmas to truly compete with the i phone 5s and GS4. People need to stop getting their own hopes up. The leaked aristo specs are good not great they were great when those specs were released. We can expect quad core that's a given. Screen size larger another given. Screen specs maybe not so much. If they can throw an amoled on the Q10 why not on the aristo? And if the Q10 has a 2100 mAh battery the aristo sure as he'll needs that rumored 2800 as a bare minimum. I'm not sure what to expect in regards to the aristo. Part of me wants it to be a phablet z10. Part of me wants it to be a distinct differentiated device. The aristo WILL be the flagship device we are looking for. And it's safe to say it's on time for late 2013.

    Keep in mind that there are 4 more "Devices " to be launched in 2013. There's the R series S series A series and the Black forest 128 GB tablet. And we know we won't be seeing any low level devices this year as has been stated by BBRY. So keeps you wondering what does BBRY have in store for 2013?

    Yep, nobody said the new Z10 was going to be the flagship. There are other devices coming too besides the Z10 and Q10. Not sure if this device roadmap is still acurate, but it came from Blackberry.

    No, it is not Dev Alpha A. . .
    No.. it is the Alpha A. I have it and it matches that 100%

    I can't believe this is an actual conversation. Give up and move on. It's the Alpha A
