When the BlackBerry Beta Zone originally launched, it only included Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. It added more countries, and of course we wondered why Australia was left out. They finally added even more countries and Australia was finally included. Here’s the list of all the countries included so far…
And the included countries are:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Cayman Islands
- Hong Kong
- Netherlands Antilles
- Puerto Rico
- Saint Kitts and Nevis
- Saint Lucia
- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
- South Africa
- Sri Lanka
- Trinidad and Tobago
- Turks and Caicos Islands
- United Kingdom
- United States
The program is free and you can register without having any prerequisites. The only requirements to join are the following:
- You must be living in one of the countries in the list above to participate.
- You must agree to the Terms and Conditions of the BlackBerry Beta Zone and specific legal agreements to each beta program.
- Download and use the latest software versions as they become available.
- Provide feedback about the software you’re testing.
What are the benefits of the BlackBerry Beta Zone?
You can preview and evaluate pre-release software before it’s released to the public on the market. As a beta participant you’ll be able to do the following:
- Provide your thoughts and views on product designs and upcoming features
- Be a part of shaping future releases of BlackBerry products.
- Voice your opinions and thoughts through online discussions, feedback, and surveys.
- Validate product features and technical documentation.
- Plan, train, and prepare for upcoming releases.
There are two types of programs available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone:
We encourage you to register and be a part of something fun, be a part of the community. You’ll have the advantage to see some products first hand before most others do. And know you had a part in it’s development when it comes out. If you haven’t signed up, I’m left to wonder why not? It’s free and you have nothing to lose. We can’t share everything we test in the beta, so if you’re curious, register and come see for yourself.
