And as expected, it has now disappeared from B&H Photo. Look for it to return next week.
Although the DTEK60 still remains unofficially announced by BlackBerry, that hasn't stopped retailers from putting the device up for pre-order. The latest comes from B&H Photo who now has the unlocked Android-powered DTEK60 available for $499.99 with some pre-order bonuses.
Specs as per B&H Photo
- GSM / 4G LTE Capable
- North American Variant
- 1.6 GHz + 2.15 GHz Dual-Core CPUs (Snapdragon 820)
- 32GB Storage Capacity + 4GB of RAM
- 5.5" AMOLED Touchscreen Display
- QHD 2560 x 1440 Resolution
- BlackBerry Productivity & Security Suite
- BlackBerry Convenience Key
- microSDXC Memory Card Slot
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
For that $499.99, you will get a BlackBerry DTEK60, a BlackBerry DTEK60 Soft Shell Case, and a BlackBerry RC-1500NA Rapid Travel Charger according to the listing. Still, there is no ship date attached to the listing and given October 11 was one of the rumored release dates and BlackBerry has yet to make it official, the next rumored date in line is October 17.
As with the previous pre-order from NCIX that was subsequently removed, I can't really suggest you go ahead and pre-order an as of yet unofficially announced handset, but that's entirely up to you if you wish to do so. Worst they can do I suppose is cancel it.
