    Exactly.

    BlackBerry did represent that the DTEKs would get Nougat. There's not a legal case here, but there sure is a consumer revolt case. Attempting to force people to buy a new phone to get Nougat before their DTEK would be retired for other reasons is both foolish and worthy of retribution by BlackBerry's customers who bought the DTEK series devices.

    It's foolish for one simple reason -- with non-user-replaceable batteries and 600Mhz spectrum coming online there are already two reasons for someone to upgrade in the next couple of years. If you destroy good will by not keeping your promises then the odds of a customer buying another handset from TCL/BlackBerryMobile are ZERO.

    Attempting to force an early upgrade purchase is a losing proposition. You brand yourself as a liar at the outset, which is never a good position for a vendor to be in, and further some people will (quite-justifiably) take that to be an act of attempted extortion.

    Given that there are two organic reasons for people to buy upgrades in the first place this is just flat-out dumb. While I'm sure the cost of putting Nougat on these devices is not zero the damage to the firm's reputation extends far beyond the owners of those units as you can't keep the knowledge of that failure to them alone.

    Personally, I still like my DTEK60, but yes, the 600Mhz band openings will eventually force a replacement with something else, because the enhanced coverage will make it worth doing. If TCL/BlackBerryMobile does not upgrade the DTEK60 to Nougat in a reasonably contemporary fashion then I will not be buying any further hardware from them.

    For me it's that simple.
    Agree, no Nougat. No me, unless they go straight to "O" update and skip Nougat then I would be happy and everyone that owns Dtek series.

    No word yet from Blackberry Mobile, since they took over support, but I did find something interesting.

    On their new DTEK60 support page, they have a prominent "Mobile update" link that currently says, "Coming soon..." I posted about it here.

    What's your address? We're meeting at your place. What kind of snacks will you be providing? I'll bring the bottle of Captain Morgan. Do you already have Coke and Diet Coke or should I pick up some 2 liters?

    Who else wants to join?

    Sorry if they TCL sales all the Dtek 60 production. But it is also a good news for the future of Blackberry phone. Best alternative is th Alcatel Idol 4s pro. By TCL either. With the BB suite download on from the playstore.

    Having "O" would be a nice and decent gift. No one actually promised that DTEK60 will NOT get "O". If whoever vendor is did not work on "N" for DTEK60 - they'd better forget it about completely and start "O".

    No problem for O.
    That's if they want to secure the 625 chipset for Android O. My guess is you'll see O but the KEYone will have the same fate as the Priv.

    One upgrade OS and it's done!

    It would be fine with me. Keeping a phone for more than 12-18 months is a foreign concept.

    I'd also buy another one for $140. Seems worth it for a while longer at that price.
