Silver BlackBerry Key2 back in stock at Amazon on August 6th

Silver BlackBerry Key2 back in stock at Amazon on August 6th
If you have been trying to purchase the BlackBerry KEY2 in Silver from Amazon only to find that the model was not in stock, we have some good news. The online retailer will replenish its inventory of the phone on August 6th. Amazon is selling it for the MSRP of $649. If you want to settle for the Black variant of the KEY2, that can be ordered from Amazon right away.

In case you've forgotten, the KEY2 features a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1620. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform equipped with an octa-core CPU running at 2.2GHz. Handling graphics is the Adreno 512 GPU. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A dual camera setup can be found on back. The primary 12MP camera has an aperture of f/1.8, and the secondary 12MP camera has a 50-degree viewing angle and an aperture of f/2.6. The front-facing 8MP camera handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery, and Android 8.1 is pre-installed.

The KEY2 features outstanding battery life (up to 48 hours says the manufacturer), 20% larger keys than the ones found on the KEYone, and the Speed Key that allows you to set up to 52 shortcuts. And don't forget the cleverly placed fingerprint sensor located on the physical keyboard's spacebar. Keep in mind that the phone is compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile.

Gotta love the GSM carriers.

Yup. At $600, you would think it would be unlocked for all carriers. The Essential phone is only $400 with flagship specs, and it's usable for ALL carriers. The Moto G is a midrange phone that costs much less than the KeyTWO, yet it's usable on ALL carriers. What's the excuse here?

Yup. Gotta love them indeed. Especially since GSM is the global standard, and is predominantly used gloabally, as opposed to the antiquated and outdated CDMA networks that even CDMA carriers are quickly phasing out. It’s no wonder that OEM’s that make smartphones like the key2 and aren’t wasting money on networks that are old and soon to be obsolete, much like the Essential Phone is soon to be obsolete, lol.

Gotta love broken records. Some people are so threatened by choice just because they think the world doesn't include the US market. Newsflash, when CDMA does die out, carriers are still going to have different LTE bands. It's not really a matter of debate because if a cheap Moto G phone can include support for ANY carrier, then there's no reason why blackberry mobile can't do the same thing for the KeyTWO. Some people just need to stop with the cop out excuses.

Gotta love a broken record that continues to prove his hypocrisy by calling others a broken record, lol. Some people are so threatened by PROGRESS and by what’s DIFFERENT than what they think the status quo should be, that bash anything and everything that doesn’t suit their narrative, and they continue to believe that there aren’t markets outside of the U.S. Newsflash: When CDMA (which already has most of its body in the grave) finally takes its last gasp of air and goes where useless, antiquated, outdated tech goes that’s discarded, carriers will be switching over to VoLTE, which works with GSM networks and is already supported by many OEM’s that use GSM. It’s not really a matter that’s up for debate that the majority of OEM’s refuse to support CDMA networks because it’s dying and isn’t financially viable for them to do so. But those that don’t understand how business works and thinks that the world must suit their narrative will always continue to live in denial so they can justify their trolling.

In other words, MG means that if you are on Sprint or Verizon, you're irrelevant. Of course no one said anything about markets not existing outside the US. And he's doing the exact same thing he's accusing me of doing. Which is irrelevant once you move away from an area that has LTE. If that was even remotely true, Sprint and Verizon would not have any devices. Lol, this guy is a broken record for sure. Sure MG, whatever you want to believe to suit your ridiculously false narrative.

In other words, I mean that even Sprint and Verizon KNOW that CDMA is irrelevant, and that’s why they are hastily moving away from that outdated technology. Of course, no one said anything about the world not including the U.S. And you’re doing the same thing that you’re accusing me of doing. Which means that it will default to something else that’s run on a GSM network. You need to accept the fact that technology progresses, and the outdated gets discarded. Lol, can you read? I said “most”, and that’s a fact. Only a handful of OEM’s support CDMA, and most of Verizon’s newer smartphones are VoLTE. Lol, you are such a stuck record, regurgitating the same comments over and over again, as if it’s going to stop technology from advancing away from outdated tech. But do continue to promote your ridiculously false narrative while I have a good laugh.

Deflecting, backtracking, conjecture. Pretty much sums up your comment right there. You are so against anything that is remotely about having a choice. No one said anything about not wanting to move ahead with technology. Stop making things up to suit your false narrative. Don't try to walk back your statement now. You are the only one who has a problem with it. You just want to go against what I said just because I said it.

Deflecting, backtracking and conjecture. Pretty much a part of every statement you make here. You are so against anything that is remotely different from the way you feel things should be that it’s ridiculous. You have constantly been against the progression of technology and the discarding of outdated tech. Stop fabricating to suit your false narrative. Don’t try and pretend that you don’t have a reading comprehension issue. You are the one that has a problem with companies moving on from outdated technology. You are constantly against any and everything I say because it’s me that’s saying it.

Can you at least try to come up with your own responses, or is that your way of giving up because you know that I'm right? How is that so? Is it because I said something about not wanting users on Verizon and Sprint to be left out? Stop making stuff up to suit your false narrative. If a cheap $200 phone can do it, then so can blackberry. Perhaps you should take a look back and realize that you are the one who is the cause of this. I'm not against anything you say. You are the one who takes this personal. You started at me when I started posting here many months ago.

Can you at least try to come up with something different when you create a new account instead of regurgitating the same old shtick? Or is that your way of letting everyone know who you really are. It’s because you have been. Verizon and Sprint users won’t be left out of the progression of technology, as the carriers wouldn’t be that foolish to kick their bread and butter to the curb. Stop making stuff up to suit your false narrative. Carriers in Canada have discarded CDMA technology already and NO ONE looked back or even cared. If the customers of those carriers can move on, then so can you. Perhaps you should stop changing the story to suit your false narrative. You are against progression, and you take the things I say here about tech way too personal. I understand you have a vendetta against me because I made you deactivate your primary account and got your other faux ones banned, but it’s time to let it go now.

What the heck are you talking about? I haven't made a new account. You have been using that same, tired story for months now. Do you not have any new material? You are the only one who keeps on bringing up CDMA. I simply said if a cheap Moto G phone can be used on ALL carriers, then what's the excuse for BlackBerry? Seems like the only one making stuff up is you. I don't have a vendetta against you and your false narratives. I think you are missing a few cells here and there because you think I'm someone that I'm not. Let it go and stop with the mad obsession. It's just tech, but you seem to think it's personal. Get a life.

Lol, NO ONE believes this is your first account, mxyzptlk. You can cut the act now. You have the same M.O. every account you use. It’s laughable how easy it is to spot you. You are the only one that keeps attacking BlackBerry Mobile about having GSM smartphones. CDMA is in casket with the lid slowly closing. You’re the only one that keeps making stuff up to say the contrary. Except you do have a vendetta against me. You already admitted it in the past. It’s why you keep making accounts to do the same thing that you’ve been doing since your first one in 2012, lol. Stop with the fabrications to suit your false narrative. It’s just tech. You don’t need to make 10 accounts to live on a tech site. There is more to life than just this. Get a life and quit making account after account on tech blogs.

I don't care if you don't believe me. Once again, I don't have to prove anything to you. You are the one who is obsessed with a user who probably doesn't even post here anymore. Let it go. I'm not attacking anything. You are the one who has a problem with something that's not even going to effect you. CDMA is a dying breed, and I'm not denying that. That is still not going to change my point. You are drunk and delusional. I just find out about this site several months ago before I made this account, so spare me the conjecture. I've seen you go at it with several users until they get tired of going at it with a brick wall. You don't get it, you are the one who needs to get a life. You claim to live in the big apple, so get out and experience life or something. It's not that big of a deal.
