The DTEK60 went really well. Can only see things getting better for BlackBerry now - this looks a top quality phone, going back to their roots with a keypad too. I like it!

If Blackberry / TCL launch this with a Snapdragon 821 and 4gb of Ram and 64gb of storage with the already Stereo speakers and they tweak the hell out of the cameras to take stellars pictures front and rear we have a serious Flagship on our hands ....question is how much does TCL want this.????
And yes if this is the Specs I will first in line this would be the first true bold replacement.

Looks good. At least for me, Blackberrys are very good phones. I'll have to make up my mind which one to retire - Classic or Passport - when this one come out.
design is absolutely brilliant, but the entire size should within 147 x 77.2 x 9.4 mm (5.79 x 3.04 x 0.37 in) or preferably slightly more. It should not be too big or too small.
Yes, The silver part should be black and edge curved. To more improvise, all the apps should be kept on the key pad on long press.
The top silver part should be black as well , and the corners should be rounded like the bottom once , just to be perfect .
My next phone... Been waiting for keyboard with android and bb hub and decent battery... cant wait
I believe BB shall make also an side slider. I had about 6 years ago an Nokia E7, brilliant side slider, excellent design and build quality. Only one unpleasant issue - way to heavy.
I would guess a reloaded version (SD 821, 4GB, 5.2 or 5.5", etc). A slider keyboard will be a great advantage for regular man's hands. Easy to hold the phone and type with both hands.
Every constructor goes to boardless & Blackberry goes to physique keybord
None of you have used it...
So STFU about it being too small.
I meant people who have never had a physical keyboard phone. Stupid touch keyboards and auto-correct.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2017I hope the price will be around 400 dollar, I believe this dtek 70 will make blackberry on the... moreIt could be $600 and still be more useful than any Iphone, Samsung, or any of the Chinese made stuff.
For those that have never had a touch screen phone, try racing someone who has a physical keyboard sometime. Bet they can type faster and more accurately without even looking at the keyboard than you can typung normally.
I used to have a little LG900 feature phone that had a PK. I could consistently win bets for how fast and accurately I could send a specific text message. And this was against Iphone3's, Samsung Galaxy 1 and 2, plus Motorola DX2.
Then again, I am old enough to remeber learning to type on IBM Selectric typewriters. Didn't even have correction ribbons, had to use correction paper and type over the character.
