As you may have noticed, for the launch of the DTEK50, BlackBerry did have a webcast set up to introduce the device to the world, but it was not made public. Instead, BlackBerry opted to record the event and as such have now made it available for everyone to check out.
This July 26, 2016, webcast from our headquarters in Waterloo, Canada was done with Alex Thurber, senior vice president, Global Device sales at BlackBerry, David Kleidermacher, Chief Security Officer at BlackBerry, Scott Wenger, head of device marketing and design at BlackBerry, and hosted by Maribel Lopez, independent mobile analyst. In the webcast, they launch our newest secure Android phone, the DTEK50 by BlackBerry, with a sleek and ultra-thin design, brilliant 13-megapixel rear camera, and the potential for up to 2 TB of storage. This is just scratching the surface of the affordable phone's specs, which costs $299 in the U.S. In the webcast, they take a deeper look into what makes the DTEK50 so special. It combines Android with the security of BlackBerry, which allows users and their apps to stay protected from malware and hackers.
Personally speaking, this was an interesting webcast to watch and really took a different path from what we have come to expect from BlackBerry. Go ahead and hit play and take a look for yourself. It's about 48 minutes long so set aside the time.
