DTEK Devices Support Pages Are Now Live on BlackBerry Mobile site

After our EIC, Brad, reported about the transfer of the DTEK50 and DTEK60 device from BlackBerry to BlackBerry Mobile, their support pages are now live on the BlackBerry Mobile web site.

Now that both DTEK devices are officially part of BB Mobile portfolio, they can provide support for them. The most interesting thing on the support pages of both DTEK devices and KEYone is the Mobile upgrade section, currently sitting on “Coming Soon”. Are BlackBerry Mobile planning an upgrade for the DTEK to Android 7 ? We heard about the confirmation of BlackBerry Mobile that Android O (Oreo) will come to KEYone, but there is currently no time line.

We can only guess that it will be around the end of the year like other vendors.

    Ok- that’s good news. This is convincing me into getting a dtek50 or maybe 60. Cheers

    Great news, but the price remains rather steep. The DTEK 60 is just under $500, whereas the Acatel Idol 4S, from which it was derived, is a lot cheaper, about half the price. I wonder if BlackBerry Mobile will keep BlackBerry as a special interest device, for security minded consumers and businesses, or, they will try and make the devices more affordable, so that they can get into more hands.

    • BlackBerry is their premium brand while Alcatel is their economy brand. While I suspect we will see more mid-range phones with a BlackBerry label, I don’t expect we’ll see BlackBerry and Alcatel meeting in terms of price point

        It certainly looks that way. It would be wrong to make BlackBerry very cheap. Their niche is security minded consumers. Soon, the world will realise the importance of secure devices and BlackBerry Mobile will be ready with its offerings. Going Android will save the BlackBerry phone business. The BlackBerry secure software is a major differentiator. The fact that it hasn’t been hacked, speaks volumes about how secure it is. Now, those companies which dropped BB10, in favour of Android and iOS, have a secure Android phone to pick from, when they order.
