    I read in another forum that the Argon will not be all touch but with a keyboard. I don't want keyboard, I want all touch phone.

    Can somebody please clarify if this is true?

    The "Mercury" is the physical keyboard phone, and the only one after the Dtek50 that BlackBerry actually said was supposed to come - in early 2017. Although only known as "Rome".

    The "Argon" is still only rumor - never even mentioned by BlackBerry - but supposed to be all touch and higher spec'ed than the Dtek50.

    The only stat I didn't like was the weight, wish it was as heavy as a Passport. Otherwise what I expected. As long as she's pretty & feels good in the hand probably my next phone. I will miss BB10

    If I remember well, the Alcatel 4 Pro (or S) doesn't have a curved screen like the DTEK 60 (aka Argon).

    It's a mix between the two!
    Basically a 4s with processor and camera from the Alcatel idol 4 pro.

    Okay, so in one part, it says it has a selfie flash - just like the dtek50, while the notifications section mentions a red led.

    We need a bit of clarification there. Does it have a white front camera flash led and a red led? Is it that the front flash led was simply changed to a red led (more likely)?

    If it does have a red led, is it only red which can be easily switched from the white? Or, will it be an rgb led which is a much bigger change to the hardware if the base model is in fact based on having a single element white led?

    What I think is most likely... along the TCL production line where the BlackBerry line runs, someone is using a red sharpie and marking the inside of the front led hole, so that the white led looks red when it comes on. And, no one will know until about a year later when the red ink starts to fade...

    Alcatel idol 4 pro is going to be a Windows phone, according to YouTube.
    Now this is going to be difficult for me. Same hardware with continuum for Winmobile & bb Android on the other hand.
    Why go for bb Android?

    ^^ that ad was for dtek50 with someone adding the dtek 60 picture
    The actual dtek60 specs are much better than that video.
