Spec comparison: BlackBerry DTEK60 vs DTEK50 vs PRIV

BlackBerry launched the DTEK60 today, a premium smartphone costing just £475 and taking on the best smartphones in terms of specifications and security solutions.

We compare the DTEK60 with two other BlackBerry phones, namely the PRIV and the DTEK50 and see for ourselves how they compare and which among them is the best value for money.

While we expected the DTEK60 to be another mid-range phone with some minor upgrades over the DTEK50, BlackBerry surprised us all with a phone superior to the PRIV in almost all respects. By looking at the features and specifications of the DTEK60, we can now safely state that it, and not PRIV, is now the company's flagship smartphone.

Here's a look at the specifications of the three phones which will give you an idea of what they are capable of. Since the PRIV and the DTEK50 aren't that new, they have faced price cuts over the months and are nowhere as pricey as they were at the time of release. However, we are sure that if you wait a few months, you may be able to buy a DTEK60 at a price lesser than its carrying at the moment.
