BlackBerry is still alive. And the company has today announced the launch of the “world’s most secure” Android smartphone called the BlackBerry DTEK50

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is a rebranded alcatel Idol 4 smartphone which comes with BlackBerry’s version of Android and includes BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Keyboard, BlackBerry’s encryption which is FIPS 140-2 compliant and Malware Protection.

The BlackBerry DTEK50’s software lets you have full control over the apps and keeps you in loop as to which app has what amount of access. This is in turn useful to know if your privacy is at risk and how to tackle it.

And which the smartphone running on Android, they freely get access to millions of application from the Google Play Store.
