    Isn't it ironic that it is generally just a matter of time before we get leaked information from a company that builds its reputation on security.
    Not really. There are too many moving parts - FCC certifications, wifi alliance, vendors, distribution channels, etc.

    And really, who cares?

    They promise to secure your data, not leaks of their handsets... nor preventing your phone from ever being stolen, if you define security so broadly.

    There haven't been leaks but there have been renders
    They already are spending time on the PKB phone
    Rebranding makes them spend less time on HW so it's good for them

    It's good for them, but there is no Physical Keyboard Device that they can rebrand at the moment...

    the one after the Argon (if it does release) will be with a classic like 4 row keyboard running Android.
    Supposed to launch in Feb 2017

    Z30STA100-2/10.3.2.2876
    I seriously doubt that. For Feb'17, we should have seen something by now, since there isn't an existing PKB android device they can simply rebrand, UNLESS... UNLESSSSSS they re-release passport or Classic running Android.

    Have you guys seen this rendering? Saw it on instagram via Realdhabkirk. IMO this is super sleek and sexy. The other photos of the TCL950 look drab compared to this. I'd have a hard time not pulling the trigger if the dtek 60 looked like this.
    Is DTEK60 another Alcatel with a BlackBerry Security Feature??-img_20160926_205309.png

    We might see something more towards the end of the year
    Say November around
    In line with what we saw with the DTEK50 and 60

    Which is probably why they might not be able to launch it before next year since they need more time for the pkb device

    Totally agree! This pic of the DTEK60 looks sexy. It looks really nice! If this is the real deal, I'm going to be very happy.

    It's not. See the pictures of the TCL950 above.

    So is this rendering of the DTEK60 not the real deal? Yeah I saw the pics of the TCL950. I have to say that the pic, or rendering of the DTEK60 looks nicer. Hope to see some real pics of this device soon then.

    Yeah that rendering posted on instagram looks very similar to the TCL950 except the metal band around the outside looks like a different shade of silver. If the TCL950 is just a reference device, I don't see why BlackBerry wouldn't/couldn't ask for a slight production variation to make it look different. But again, we're just going on leaks so who knows.

    The instagram account it was posted on is the owner of BlackBerryCentral.

    It will be interesting to see the price of the DTEK60 since it's a combination of the 4S and the 950.

    Agreed. I really wanted to see a logo on the front in keeping with their iconic designs.

    But then people will complain about the excessive bezel just for the logo...

    Very true. I don't mind if they don't put a logo on the front. It will be on the back so it's ok. Google and Apple do it this way as well.

    I've also seen written on a few descriptions of the Dtek60 something along the lines of intuitive gesture based navigation. Wonder what that could mean. I'd love if they were able to make their launcher function similar to the way BBOS 10 does. Specifically showing running apps each time you go home and swipe to the right for Hub.

    I know, I know, wishful thinking.

    I'm happy to buy a phone that I can trust and know I will be getting security updates every months. Like I said, they might as well get one+ to build their phone for them
