    Can anyone point to a single bit of marketing for this device that would cost more than $50 (excluding salary and on-costs)?

    Or even $25?
    Every time I access the Internet there's BlackBerry ads on there directed at me.

    With all the Android offerings, BlackBerry is not even mentioned in this site. Is this a deliberate attempt to discredit BlackBerry? The last time this site had a good review with BlackBerry was with the Passport.
    GSMArena smartphone buyer's guide: 2016 Holiday edition - GSMArena.com
    It's simply a deliberate attempt to focus on those brands which are relevant in the consumer market. With less than 0.5 per cent market share and at less than bargain pricing, BlackBerry is simply not one of them.

    This Indian deal is interesting - I am guessing this is the licencee IF dtek50 and 60 sell - if they don't, they don't sign.

    I have yet to see a review from a popular techie blogger or YouTuber. Do you have any links?

    Oh, I never said a review. Just an article. There are and were articles from Droid-Life, Androd Authority, Phandroid, Phonearena. They just basically said it was available for pre-order, and that it was available for purchase.

    I doubt they have even sold enough DTEK50 & 60 to match what the Priv had sold in its first few months. Who even knows about either phone without advertisement.

    I say this quarter sales will be around 400,000 all devices combined BB10, Priv and DTEK50/60.

    Well.. every time someone like John or I tracks these numbers we are told we are idiots or its inaccurate and that phone X is a great seller... then the earnings call comes around and they announce another bomb.

    So I'll just say that *relative* to the other phones I've tracked this way - it's very very slow and as John says getting slower.
    Don't listen to them

    Starting to see more places carry the DTEK60, which goes against the hearsay that they've pulled it from everyone due to them wanting to kill it and selling it only through shopbb... oh well. Funny how some of the same people who will consistently criticize people for listening to rumors about new devices coming (or anything positive for that matter) automatically called that rumor credible and started spouting it as if it was the truth... Hypocrites entertain me a bit... :-D

    A very simple calculation.
    The DTEK60 is about 67% more expensive than the DTEK50 in the global markets.
    In India, the DTEK60 is 113% more expensive than the DTEK50.
    Which is the crazy part. The DTEK50 pricing isn't that bad. The DTEK60 on the other hand is atrocious.
    But people feel BlackBerry wants to apply the demand supply fundamentals specifically to India and we always complaining.
    I'd like to see the same thing happening in US or Canada and then let's see whether people complain or not.

    Be more optimistic people, BlackBerry has the holiday season and a good price to score some decent sales. I hope the carriers provide good support too
    No one even knows this device launched. It will fail miserably in terms of sales. Even the PRIV generated a small bit of talk out of the gate. This, crickets.

    Early days but glad to see the 50 still being bought, hopefully the 60 does better. It's not too late for BlackBerry to start making some noise about it, however little. Cos frankly, the brand has been hurt and people are gonna see it and just look away....except it's pushed by the sellers or some other forms just to get more people to pay a bit more attention to it....fortunately, it's a good device that some could take a risk with considering its price

    That's got to be helpful in terms of sales!
    Is there carrier support in the UK? Or how does it work over there?

    Carrier support? Not with this device. It's only available to buy outright. Perhaps in the near future

    Wouldn't get too excited about the Clove UK top 10 chart which has the 50 at no. 8 & the 60 at no. 3.

    Clove explains "This list is our top 10 based on our preferences, feelings, sales & customer feedback. Others may have a very different opinion on what makes their top 10."
    So not a sales chart then.
