BlackBerry KEYone is finally available in the US


Just as expected, the BlackBerry KEYone is now available in the US after being Canada-exclusive for a while due to unforeseen circumstances.

The keyboard-toting handset can be snatched from Amazon and select BestBuy stores with a $549.99 price tag. Later this summer, the device will be outright available from Sprint as well. The device is also being sold in the UK, where it's going for £499 VAT included.

Have in mind that the device is available in two versions - one is a CDMA one and is compatible with Verizon and Sprint, whereas the other is a GSM one that works nicely with AT&T and T-Mobile, so make sure to pick the right one for your needs. 


Make sure to check out our review of the phone. Spoiler alert: it's a pleasant surprise that shouldn't be overlooked at all.

I'd like to see more carriers besides Sprint come on board and carry the KEYone. Perhaps that's something that we will hear about a little later in the summer. Still, it's great to see both GSM and CDMA variants available.

What a bulls**t launch.. They made us wait for such a long time saying we are building enough phones, now can't find a single phone for purchase.

Or, it could be that demand exceeded even the new supply levels....

No bro, it was already expected that the device would have high demand and they made us wait a full month because they wanted to build enough devices. That my friend is what I am upset about. TCL was giving us the impression that they will give us the best product launch ever but they did worst than BlackBerry.

So what makes you think that the demand didn't even exceed the anticipated demand? I think the device selling out even though TCL delayed the launch due to high demand is a testament to how many people actually want the device, my dude.

You know that you're mxyzptlk. Stop dancing around the truth, and stop deflecting by saying that other users here have multiple accounts like you do.

No I don't. I've already shot down your BS about that. But I've already proven that you do, mxyzptlk.
