BlackBerry said it would talk about new handsets this week and it has kept that promise. The company today announced its second Android-powered smartphone, it has a very unusual name, it’s called the DTEK50. BlackBerry touts it as “the world’s most secure Android smartphone.” Pre-orders for the handset are now open in the United States as well as in a handful of markets across the globe.
