BlackBerry DTEK60 shows up on the Staples Canada website

BlackBerry DTEK60 shows up on the Staples Canada website
Even though the new BlackBerry DTEK60 has yet to be officially introduced, we have seen it available for pre-orders through New York's B&H Photo. North of the border, office supply chain Staples Canada has the DTEK60 listed on its website. BlackBerry's latest Android powered handset is not yet for sale from Staples Canada; unlike B&H, the retailer is not yet collecting pre-orders. Instead, the unit is listed as being out of stock, as Staples Canada waits for BlackBerry to make it official.

The DTEK60 features a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 820 chipset carrying a quad-core 2.15GHz CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable native storage. The 2TB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage.

A 21MP camera is on back and includes PDAF for fast focusing. On the front of the phone is an 8MP camera for selfies and video chats. Yes Virginia, this is the first BlackBerry model to feature a fingerprint scanner. The lights are kept on thanks to a 3000mAh battery, and the phone comes with a Type-C USB port.

Staples Canada will sell the phone, unlocked, for $699.99 CAD. That works out to $532 USD, or a bit more than the $499.99 USD that B&H is asking for pre-orders. B&H is also throwing in a free rapid charger and travel case, a $50 USD value. It doesn't appear that Staples Canada is tossing in any extras with the purchase of a DTEK60.

Good price tag for such specs, coupled with BB's top-notch software security, and the 2TB microSD capacity makes this a great package!

If it's anything like BlackBerry's latest offerings which are quoted to have battery life ranging between 22.5 hours and 17 hours respectively, then it's above average.

Keyword, in case you can't read, is probably.

Keywords: You, Salty, and Troll. If you can't handle your BS being challenged and debunked, don't post it.

Not my fault if you jumped the gun without actually reading my post.

Cut the BS. You were trolling. I shut you down with facts. Get over it.

Why are you even replying to this man?

Because it's a guilty pleasure of mine to put him in his place. Although, you're right. It is best to ignore him, as he's a troll and an attention w#0r3.

The release date imminent for this sweet handset at super sweet price. Flagship specs for below flagship price...definitely can't beat that sweet combination.
