BlackBerry Tips the DTEK60, its Third Android Phone


BlackBerry may be getting out of the smartphone game, but it has one last secure Android smartphone up its sleeve, the DTEK60.

Aimed at enterprise customers, the handset (pictured, center) includes security keys intended to prevent spoofing or counterfeiting, as well as multi-stage verification. "Our expertise in secure mobile communications and software engineering has made the Android OS more secure, more responsive, and more productive," BlackBerry said in a blog post.

DTEK60 also saves up to five different IDs in its fingerprint sensor, for use when unlocking the phone, accessing Password Keeper, and making mobile purchases.

"You don't want your employees to feel like their work phone is second-rate,"BlackBerry said. "In order for a secure device to truly shine, people have to want to use it."

The phone runs a 3,000mAh battery (for up to 24 hours of mixed use) and proprietary software like BlackBerry Hub, Calendar, Convenience Key, and Intelligent Keyboard.

The 5.5-inch scratch-and-smudge-resistant quad HD display features gesture controls, as well as device search and instant actions. There is also an 8-megapixel selfie cam, 21-megapixel rear shooter, and microSD card slot for up to 2TB of expandable memory.

Android for Work, meanwhile, enables access to a selection of business and IT-managed apps and BlackBerry's productivity software portfolio.

"In short, DTEK60 makes life easier and more enjoyable for your employees both within the workplace and without—and makes them more productive as a result," BlackBerry said.

Consumers in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the US, and the UK can now buy the $499 DTEK60 online; more countries will be announced in the coming weeks.

For a limited time, all orders will come with a complimentary accessory bundle. US and Canadian customers get a soft shell case and rapid charger; European buyers receive a pocket case and rapid charger. The offer ends on Nov. 8 at 2:59 a.m. ET.

Today's unveiling comes only three months after BlackBerry announced its second Android smartphone, the $299 DTEK50. Sporting a 5.2-inch full HD display with scratch-resistant glass, support for microSD cards up to 2TB, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera and 13-megapixel rear shooter, the handset includes Android for Work and Google Play for Work, as well as support for BB's Enterprise Mobility Management apps.
