Early Adopter Program

Add Your Voice and Experience to BlackBerry Product Development

As part of the Early Adopter Program (EAP), you’ll play a pivotal role in the validation of pre-production software. You’ll have access to the newest BlackBerry® software and the opportunity to provide suggestions on the features of new products before they’re released, giving you a say in how the final product turns out. You’ll also benefit from a dedicated EAP Product Specialist, an expert who’ll assist you during installation and updates, and throughout the program.

How to participate

Participation in the program is by invitation only. Contact your Research In Motion (RIM) Account Manager for more information.
