The BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition is now available from two retail stores in Canada

If you like the BlackBerry KEYone, you'll absolutely love the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition. First, the Black and Silver colors are replaced by an all Black look. But that is only part of the story. Consider that the phone carries 4GB of RAM as opposed to 3GB on the standard version of the handset. And the amount of native storage is doubled to 64GB.

BlackBerry Mobile has already tweaked its website and has disseminated emails to let those with a hankering for the KEYone Black Edition know that it can be purchased from Canadian retailers Blueshop and CDW Canada. The latter has the device priced at $891.99 CAD (equivalent to $713 USD). At Blueshop, the KEYone Black Edition will cost you $799.99 CAD (which equals $640 USD). Obviously, your best bet is to make the purchase at CDW Canada, a move that will save you $92 CAD.

If you're interested in purchasing the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition from either Canadian retailer, click on the appropriate sourcelink. Unfortunately, the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition is not coming to the U.S. There is a BlackBerry KEYone Space Black Edition available in the states from AT&T, but the specs mirror those seen on the original KEYone model (3GB RAM and 32GB of native storage).

That is one sexy, All Black Stealth Attack Smartphone, but DAMN!! That’s a big jump in price from $549USD. I still have hope that the Everything Black KEYone will come to the U.S. after the exclusivity deal with AT&T (based on the color) is over.

$700 is a bit steep. I think they need to lower the price some. It already has a disadvantage of releasing later in the year next to a few other smartphone releases.

People looking to buy KEYone are doing so for specific reason. They need workhorse that lasts and lasts and that is productivity powerhouse. They not looking to play angry birdie or other video game on phone. So there is no disadvantage.
