“With the BlackBerry Beta Zone app, you can test and contribute to BlackBerry 10 beta products before they are ready for the public.”

Once you’ve installed the BlackBerry Beta Zone app and registered, you’ll then be able to join the Charger Alert program to download it.

In particular, we are looking to test the unplugged and full battery alert functionality, as users have reported issues with these previously. The battery monitoring aspect within the app has been rewritten and improved so these alerts should be fully working for everybody now.
