Continuing their Android efforts after the BlackBerry Priv and the DTEK50, BlackBerry has now announced their latest Android smartphone known as the DTEK60. An all-touch higher-end device, the DTEK60 leverages the partnership with TCL/Alcatel and as such is similar to that of the TCL950 with some small key changes.
BlackBerry has now officially announced the latest in its series of secure Android smartphones, DTEK60.

Staples Canada just can't seem to keep the DTEK60 under wraps. After the initial listing for the device was removed, it has now once again returned to Staples Canada website and is available for pre-order despite having yet been made official by BlackBerry.

Europe's largest retailer of consumer electronics will be offering the DTEK60 according to a freshly leaked ad.

Another day, another BlackBerry DTEK60 spotting. This time around, the folks at Staples Canada have now listed the still unannounced officially BlackBerry DTEK60 to their website. Unlike previous listings, though, Staples is not taking any pre-orders for the device. Instead, they just place it out of stock online and left the $699.99 price tag there for all to see.
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.

If you missed out on Upstream live, you can (and should) get yourself caught up.

As expected once one image pops up, more have arrived now. This time around courtesy of the folks over at WinFuture.de. While not as clear as one would hope, the latest round of images offer up a nice look at the BlackBerry DTEK60 from all angles.
Just in case the direct from BlackBerry's servers leaked spec sheet or the FCC fillings or the GCF certification or the WiFi Alliance certification were not enough confirmation for you of the DTEK60's existence, Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks has shared a fresh new promotional image for the DTEK60.
Following up on the earlier leak of the DTEK60, the device has now landed at the FCC and WiFi alliance sites. At the FCC, the device has been registered under the model number BBA1001 but at the WiFi Alliance site, the device shows as both BBA1001 and the DTEK60.
Although we haven't heard a lot about the BlackBerry 'Argon' since the initial rumors popped up, there's now some further evidence the device exists directly off of BlackBerry's servers highlighting the device as the DTEK60.
