unveiled a second Android-based handset on Tuesday after the BlackBerry
Priv, a device called BlackBerry DTEK50 (known earlier as Hamburg or Neon).
The DTEK50 is "the world's most secure Android
smartphone" according to BlackBerry; the handset encrypts all user
information, and comes with a DTEK by BlackBerry App, which can automatically
monitor the OS to let users "know when their privacy could be at risk and
to take action to improve it." DTEK will also track other apps, notifying
users about suspicious activities on the device, like using cameras without
permission, accessing your contacts or location, sending text messages, and
turning the microphone on.
