BlackBerry KEYone combines with Android Auto to keep your eyes on the road
When you have the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition in a car's cockpit with you, it requires some will power to keep your eyes off of the dynamic looking black-hued handset, and to keep them on the road where they belong. No, we get it. The gorgeous physical QWERTY keyboard looks even more stunning in black. Heck, even those famous BlackBerry frets are covered in black.
Thankfully, as BlackBerry Mobile shows us in a new official video that was released today, the phone works with Android Auto which means that once you pair the phone to your car using Bluetooth, you can put it in your pocket. Out of sight, out of mind. You can now concentrate on your driving without being distracted.
The Black Edition of the BlackBerry KEYone features 64GB of native storage, twice the amount as the original model. While the latter is equipped with 3GB of RAM, the newer variant sports 4GB of the stuff.
The Black Edition BlackBerry KEYone will start rolling out in selected markets starting in the third quarter. While North America is one of the regions that will get the phone, there is no word yet on whether that will include the U.S. If you need a black hued BlackBerry KEYone and you live in the U.S., you can purchase the Space Black KEYone from AT&T right now. Priced at $16.67 a month over 30 months, this version of the KEYone does resemble the Black Edition on the outside, but contains the original 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside.
No matter which KEYone you end up with, both models will work with Android Auto. Check it out by clicking on the video at the top of the story.
