BlackBerry unveils the DTEK50, claims it's 'world's most secure Android smartphone'

From ZDNet

"Less than a year after releasing the Priv, BlackBerry is rolling out its second Android-powered smartphone. Called the DTEK50, the device is being touted as 'the world's most secure Android smartphone' on the market.

As expected, the DTEK50 comes with a slew of security features BlackBerry is known for, including the DTEK by BlackBerry app (which BlackBerry says inspired the name for this device), Android OS hardening and FIPS-compliant encryption. The phone also features rapid patching for security flaws, which so far stands out as one of the few differences, in terms of security, between the DTEK50 and an iPhone.

To really drive home the security point, BlackBerry says the phone is manufactured with a proprietary technique that ensures security is built into the foundation of the device.

Other specs of the phone include a 5.2-inch screen, an all-touch keyboard and a retail price tag of $299 – which makes the DTEK50 far cheaper than the $700 Priv. BlackBerry cut the price of the Priv in April and earlier this month said it would cease production of its Classic handset, which runs the BlackBerry 10 operating system.”
