Cellular devices and Blackberry go a really long way back when they were the only elite manufacturers of cellphones and the Blackberry Bold and Curve editions were among the most premium phones available in the market with the popular Blackberry messenger or Popularly shortened as BBM was the most convenient method of communication between Blackberry device owners. But with the popularity of Android and iOS smartphones in the last decade, the Blackberry devices faced a decline in sales quite rapidly. But the Canadian multinational is gearing up to a possible return to the mainstream Wireless device market with its range of upcoming devices. Blackberry announced their device the DTEK50 earlier this year and it seems that the company is following up on the device with the new upcoming device the DTEK60 which is reported to be an android device. Back in June, there were rumours that BlackBerry is working on three new devices, codenamed Neon, Argon, and Mercury. While the Neon has already been released as the DTEK50, it looks like the Argon will carry DTEK60 moniker at launch.
