    Needless to say, the above is not a 'DTEK70' as has been reported in multiple places now.. anyone with half a brain can see that. It's a Priv, obviously. Original can be found here.

    Since I'm tired of seeing crappy DTEK70 posts...-blackberry-vienna-android.jpg

    CrackBerry posted the first baseline renders of, what was at the time, the 'Vienna'. As we know it, this was the basis for the Mercury / DTEK70 going forward.

    This was the first purported real look at that 'Mercury' or 'DTEK70' if you prefer, which BTW is just an assumed name for now. There's no FACTUAL evidence it will actually be called that. It's just logical naming given the 50/60 thus far. This image as we know it now was based off of this...

    But this is where it gets tricky, try to follow along here. I know you can do it, you're a champ. Before this image actually became widespread, Dylan Habkirk put this one out...

    As you can tell, this image has the text from the above image in it and is a render of what is shown in that one. Therefore, this image is based off of what was presented in that image. It wasn't separate. And don't you all get it twisted, that's not a shot at Dylan, we're both above that petty ish.

    Then, this image became more widespread and then people started referring back to the top one as a sign of accuracy/confirmation of the image, when that's really not the case at all. Put the timeline together and you have a clear image of what happened with all these images.

    Since I'm tired of seeing crappy DTEK70 posts...-dtek-70.jpg

    This... well this is a straight up fake lulz. I'm genuinely surprised it hasn't been posted along the others as real but give it time. Some blogs are only NOW posting the others which have been posted here forever, so maybe this fake just needs to bubble up a bit.

    IThere's lots of questions about these images and their accuracy and some people have some very strong feelings about them based on their beliefs in the sources who have posted (and reposted) them. I'm not going to get into all that and will simply say, there's a reason I have NOT posted any of these to the CrackBerry blogs outside of the original Vienna images and that's because the veracity cannot be confirmed by me personally. If you feel differently, that's cool. You're all entitled to your opinions but I've put 9 years in here at CrackBerry and have always strived to make accuracy a key part of that. I don't just toss crap at the wall and hope it sticks. Plus, as anyone who has been paying attention for the past little while knows, there's a TON of mixed wording coming from BlackBerry about who may possibly even be behind this device and that assumes it even makes it market as it was initially envisioned.

    tl;dr: There's nothing new to post about Mercury/DTEK70 and it's all just rehashed crap. The same stuff that has been discussed here in these very forums for weeks/months now. If and when there's something new that's valid, it will be posted but please stop sending me crappy images of a Priv next to a Torch and saying OMGWTFBBQWHYISNTDISPOSTEDTOCBITHOUGHTYOULOVEDUSAND WEREGONNAPOSTEVERYTHING!

    PS: Given the situation, any rumored specs you may have read for the device should be considered in flux as well.

    Altough I'm annoyed of this like everyone else, there's one thing that all this is showing: INTEREST in this device.

    I'm almost desperate because there's no good keyboard phone out there besides the Priv. And the Priv has it's flaws. But I'm about to just buy it and and use it until the Mercury will be released, and if not, I've got my Priv.
