BlackBerry KEYone arriving at AT&T on September 1


Sprint will remain the only carrier to offer the BlackBerry KEYone for the rest of this month. However, come September, the smartphone will be available for purchase at AT&T. Moreover, the carrier announced the KEYone will come in a unique Space Black color, which will only be available at AT&T.

We have yet to learn the outright price of the BlackBerry KEYone, but we do know customers will be able to get it on AT&T Next for $16.67 for 30 months. The smartphone is supposed to hit shelves on September 1, so you'll have to wait just one more week.

To avoid any confusion, the Space Black color version, exclusive to AT&T, has the same specs as the original BlackBerry KEYone that's available in Silver.

The US version of BlackBerry KEYone includes a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory (expandable up to 256GB via microSD).

If you're considering buying the smartphone, we suggest reading our full BlackBerry KEYone review for more in-depth details about its performance.

Well, well, well. What have we here? Another U.S. carrier getting the BlackBerry KEYone, and the nation's second largest at that. So much for no other U.S. carrier picking up this great device, like the haters were saying. This is great news.

SEVERAL MONTHS LATER. I stand by with what I said about the KeyONE launch being a disaster. Some people seem to overlook critical details and points, but this is going to be a disaster for the KeyONE. Not only is it launching right next to the Note 8 and the iphone 8, but it's also launching next to the V30. And then there's the Pixel 2 getting released in October. The KeyONE is going to be doa just for those reasons alone.

Lmao! Who do you think you're fooling? You're just hating, as usual. My comment triggered you good because you know what I said it in pertains to you, lol. You said that no other carrier would bring on the KEYone, and now you've been proven wrong, like I said you would. The KEYone could have been released on all four carriers at the same time in the U.S., and tricked out with all the latest and greatest specs and features, and you'd still say it would be DOA. You're just trolling and hating on BlaxkBerry, like you ALWAYS do. Lmao!

I don't think that's what I said, but we both know that you're going to continue pushing your false narrative as the truth even though it's far from it. No I won't, and it wasn't. Even you can't be this blind. You said so yourself, AT&T is one of the biggest carriers in the US. The KeyONE is getting released in September, the same time frame as the phones I listed before. You're just in denial and mad because I was the one who said it. Lol, Blaxkberry? You can't even get the name right of your own platform. You can't even spell BlackBerry.

Lol, you don't think, and that's exactly what you said. But we all know that you're too much of a coward to admit that you're just a troll, so you're going to post your Trump level alternative facts to try and spin this in your favor. Lol, yes you would have. And I can certainly believe that you're stupid enough to think that you have everyone fooled with your BS. You're just mad that I called you out with the facts. Lol you can't even use punctuation properly, so you're the last one to talk about anything regarding grammar.

It's not meant to compete against the Note 8, V30 or Pixel 2. Never has except in your hating little mind. It's a mid-range offering to compete against the likes of the Moto G5. Which, coincidentally, has me wondering how many carriers sell the Moto?

Allow me to give you a bit of advice you so graciously gave me in another article: Don't waste your time. He'll just deflect or continue to live in denial. If he ever accepts the truth, then it means he'll be admitting that we've been right all along about his trolling and hating, and it will throw his entire pitiful life in complete disarray. He'll have to be placed on suicide watch after that.

Sometimes you have to wonder if he's playing us like a cheap fiddle. Or is he really that stupid?

He's really that stupid. No doubt about it. Lack of intelligence prevents him acknowledging the truth.

Sexy phone. The durability test on YouTube turned me off from it though. Which is strange as just about everyone says its built like a brick.

A little late in the game for it to be released so many months after the initial release. It’s a nice phone but newer better speced phones are right around the corner. Hopefully next year they make a successor and it’s released on all carriers.

It was never billed as a flagship with bleeding edge specs. What it does offer is a secure Android experience, a keyboard without rival and some of the best battery life in the industry.

Exactly. 100% agree with you. Don't know why people like him and the resident hater refuse to accept these facts.

I won't say a keyboard without "rival" :D ! My best experience so far is with the Blackberry passport : scrolling with the keyboard is smoother, you have access to navigation shortcut in the web browser, and the keyboard actually "learn" what you used to type (sometimes, I write a full message just by swiping up words, cause the phone already know what I'm going to type).

The BlackBerry Passport is an incredible device with an awesome physical keyboard. But the KEYone physical keyboard does just about everything you mentioned that the Passport's does.

I've had a couple of Passports and I love them, but the KEYone has an integrated fingerprint scanner as well. That makes it unrivaled. As for your other point, I think only Microsoft's word prediction is on par or better than BlackBerry's. That's a software feature, not a hardware one since the Z30 and every other non-PKB 'Berry has that.
