BlackBerry was previously called Research in Motion, is a Canadian smartphone-maker that used to make a qwerty devices and had struggled to stay in the market. But because of the domination of iOS and Android, it could not play a longer inning. After backing out its product like Blackberry from the market, it has decided to make an Android smartphone so as to pull off a chunk of the smartphone users from the market.
The Chinese Company is coming up with Blackberry DTEK60, an Android smartphone, which was leaked earlier on the Company’s website and was removed away without any official announcement, has made it to the market via third-party retailers. It is already up for pre-order in Canada and now in the US as well for a price of $499.99.

In terms of design, there is nothing great about it. Although it is beautifully designed and contains all the security features that BlackBerry boasted in its older days, it still lags somewhere.
