    I think bringing both the DTEK60 and the Mercury out about the end of November would be a brilliant marketing move--as long as it was done with some real punch in the marketing strategy i.e. lots of ads and some prime time commercials. I think there is a huge market to be reached just before Christmas. Need catchy ads with catchy music.
    Why do they need to be released in tandem?? One is a high end all touch, the other is a low-mid range corporate roll out device with a pkb. End of November means that people interested in the Pixel line have already made their decision, and people left in the lurch after the Note 7 fiasco have a replacement already. I don't see how any of this leads to a positive position for Blackberry.

    Since they may be the last devices (unless there is a huge renewed interest in BB), doing a very unique release of two phones may really catch the public's eye. I can't see that the DTEK60 will be a huge attraction myself as it is pretty similar to many slab phones out there, but every techie phone type that I have spoken to in the past 5 years laments that BB doesn't have a PKB running android as they miss their Blackberries that they could type lickety split on and they were unique. So I think BB may pull some of the market back with the android pkb. And a campaign advertising two at the same time would save big bucks. I think BB would have made a fortune with the Classic if it had been android. This is just my two cents, but I do tend to be psychic lol.
