Just like Nokia, BlackBerry fell apart when Android phones came into existence. The new era of smartphones proved to be troubling for BlackBerry. BlackBerry tried to cope with the situation by upgrading their very own BlackBerry OS in short intervals. But, it wasn’t able to give a tough competition to Android, and it finally had to be put down to bed. Since then, BlackBerry has been trying to adapt the Android OS, and they have started manufacturing devices which are suited for the same. But still, the situation hasn’t changed much, as BlackBerry is unable to get their sales up. Blackberry launched their much-awaited handset, DTEK60 in Asia and other countries one after the other during the months of October and November 2016. This is a high end device, which has several premium features. Let us take a look at this newest release from Blackberry and find out what else it has to offer –
The design of the device is pretty simple but different in many ways. The first thing you will notice is that the speakers on this phablet are on front and rear ends, at top and bottom.
