Snatch up the BlackBerry DTEK50 for just $229.99 from B&H

The mid-range BlackBerry DTEK50 is priced at $299 by ShopBlackBerry, and at $287 at Amazon. But if you want the phone at an even better price, New York City's B&H Photo is offering the Android powered handset for $229.99. That is a savings of $69.01, or 23% off from BlackBerry's price. It is also a $57.01 haircut, or a 20% discount from Amazon.

The unlocked DTEK50 carries a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 617 SoC is under the hood containing an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of internal storage (10GB available to the user). For those seeking additional storage, a 2TB capacity microSD slot is on board.

A 13MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0 is on back, while a front-facing 8MP camera snaps wide angle selfies. The front-facing camera also has a flash, allowing you to take selfies under low-light conditions. A 2610mAh battery makes sure that the hamster wheel keeps spinning, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

The unlocked DTEK50 will work in the U.S. with the 4G LTE networks of AT&T and T-Mobile. If you've already decided on the handset being your next phone (BlackBerry calls it the most secure Android phone ever), click on the sourcelink to order the device from B&H.

If you live in New York City or one of its outlying suburbs, you can pick up the handset from B&H's store at 420 Ninth Avenue on the corner of West 34th Street in Manhattan. That is just minutes from Madison Square Garden.

Great price for a very capable smartphone.

A good deal for a modestly spec handset. Unfortunately it won't work on any other network outside of AT&T and T-Mobile, so it's not universally unlocked.

Yea, that's a huge problem for BlackBerry. The Priv didn't come to Verizon until six months after its initial launch which is ridiculous. If the DTEK50 worked on Verizon, I'd buy one as a gift right now.

You have Verizon and their lack of support for BlackBerry devices to blame for that.

Dtek60 at this price would be great.

I agree. It's a great phone, but $500 makes it a difficult choice compared to the more versatile Nexus6P.

DTEK60 at this price would be a steal. Especially because it offers flagship specs, great BlackBerry Secured software and services, and all at an already great price of $499, which is some $200 less than current top of line flagships. It makes it an easy choice, even amongst the advantage of universally unlocked phones because of its price and great software and services. The speedy software security updates and constant updating of BlackBerry apps to add more features to them is the icing on the cake. Definitely a better buy, imo.

For once I agree. Except for the last part.
