For those that have been chomping at the bit for months to get their hands on the BlackBerry KEYone well today is the day for the U.S. market. BlackBerry & TCL will have the KEYone online via two stores which is via Amazon or Best Buy. Either site you purchase the BlackBerry KEYone from have it unlocked and at a price of $549.99.
Here is how it work depending on your carrier:
The BlackBerry KEYone will be available in two unlocked variants for U.S. customers, optimized for GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as a CDMA variant optimized for Verizon network support – with the CDMA variant available via Amazon at launch. Additional carrier availability of the BlackBerry KEYone – including Sprint retail availability – is expected to start this summer.
As I stated in my review, the BlackBerry KEYone is a great piece of nostalgia mixed with things going on with tech today. It has superb battery, great with multitasking, and can snap some nice pictures. Also since my review BlackBerry has continued to push out updates to increase performance which I noticed as there hasn’t been as much lag.
While typing this I see the BlackBerry KEYone is sold out on Amazon but still in stock on BestBuy site. Hopefully they made enough to go around to feed the hungry BBY fanbase.
