The handset formerly known as Argon is now up for pre-order in both Canada and the US, although BlackBerry still has to officially announce it. Unfortunately, this handset will not get any successor, since the company once known as RIM has decided to stop designing any handsets.

The handset known as BlackBerry DTEK60 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The other specs are also above average, with 4 GB RAM, an 8 MP shooter for selfies, and a 21 MP main camera on the back. This handset runs Android Marshmallow and is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery.

Priced at $499.99 USD, the DTEK60 can be acquired via B&H. Unfortunately, it comes with a catch - Sprint and Verizon users in the US cannot use it because the BlackBerry DTEK60 is only GSM-compatible. Surely not a strong selling point for the handset that might end up as the last BlackBerry device ever.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
