While BlackBerry's latest Android phone, the DTEK50, has something of an impenetrable and vexing name, it will be widely available in Canada when it arrives in early August.

BlackBerry DTEK50

There are two main ways to purchase the phone, and while we don't have carrier pricing right now, ultimately the best place to buy it will be ShopBlackBerry, the company's e-commerce store.

Direct from BlackBerry

Shipping August 8th for $429, which includes a 12,600mAh battery pack, the DTEK50 will come unlocked through the BlackBerry Store, compatible with all then major Canadian carriers.

From the carriers

While we don't have carrier pricing just yet, we know which carriers the DTEK50 will be sold at in Canada:

  • Rogers
  • Bell
  • Telus
  • Wind Mobile
  • SaskTel

If history is anything to go by, the phone will be roughly the same price as its unlocked counterpart — $430 or so — when purchased outright, and $0 on a 2-year contract.

It's possible more carriers will be added to the list in the coming weeks, and we'll update this page when links to the existing ones go live.
