Other than the Priv, blackberry has launched another smart phone to its line of Android smartphones known as the Blackberry DTek50.

It will be recalled that Blackberry says it will be launching two Android smartphones this year. The ROME and Hamburg. The Hamburg is actually the Dtek50. Just a name change which shouldn’t come as a surprise from the company.

The smart phone basically encrypts all user information and comes with a DTEK by Blackberry app. This can automatically monitor the OS to let users know when their privacy is at risk. And of course, they are also presented with ways to make their privacy better.
