BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition comes to Canada next week

BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition comes to Canada next week
The BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition is not only dressed in Henry Ford's favorite color, it also comes with a bump in specs compared to the regular version of the KEYone. Stuffed with 33% more RAM (4GB as opposed to 3GB) and twice the native storage (64GB compared to 32GB), the Black Edition of the KEYone will be available in Canada starting next week. The  higher spec'd variant of the surprise hit of the summer will be available from the Canadian websites belonging to Amazon, Walmart and Staples to name a few.

The two standout features of the KEYone are the phone's physical keyboard, which is now offered in QWERTY, QWERTZ and AZERTY layouts. In addition, thanks to the energy sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset that powers the phone, battery life is tremendous. Speaking about the battery, the inclusion of Quick Charge 3.0 means that you can charge the battery to 50% in just 36 minutes

The pricing of the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition in Canada is $799 CAD. At current exchange rates, that works out to $648 USD. The phone is not expected to be made available in the U.S., which means that Canada is about as close to the states as the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition gets.

So it will sell for $70 CAD more than the original (unlocked). Not bad for the spec bump.

Awesome. Feeling a little jealous that Canada is getting it next week as opposed to the states, but I have faith that it will make its way here after the AT&T exclusivity period is up.

Mxy has had 2 accounts banned in the last 3 days. Maybe he'll troll you with, Batmite or Tony Stark.

I think he’s already back with yet another faux troll account. He’s way too obvious with it. I think we should add Arte8800 2.0 to one of his monickers, lol.

Lol, I saw. They finally got rid of him for all of the trolling that he does. I kept telling him that he was going to wind up getting the ban hammer for all of his trolling, but he insisted that he wasn't trolling. Clearly he was. I wouldn't be surprised if he trolled me with his batmite account now.

In other BB news, shares are up thanks to their partnership with Delphi. Delphi sees the value in QNX!

Great news article Subie that actually contributed to the actual subject at hand, that being BlackBerry. Although I'm not completely sold on a self driving car.
