Canadians have less than 24 hours to buy the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition at $100 off
The BlackBerry KEYone is the most exciting handset to wear the BlackBerry name in some time. The physical QWERTY keyboard is the best seen on a 'Berry since the BlackBerry Bold 9000, and the fingerprint scanner is ingeniously embedded inside the space bar. In addition, the KEYone has fantastic battery life thanks to the 3505mAh battery inside it, and the energy sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset that powers the device.

So if you crave a BlackBerry, what can be better than the KEYone? The answer, simply, is the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition. Yes, this model is dressed in black giving it an awesome look, but beauty is more than skin deep with the KEYone Black Edition. That's because this model bumps RAM by 33% to 4GB of the stuff, and the amount of native storage is doubled to 64GB.

Unfortunately, the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition is not being sold in the U.S. market, at least not at this time. But those in Canada can pick up the phone from now through 11:59pm EST tonight, priced at $100 off  the regular retail price. The device is available from these fine retailers in Canada:

  • Amazon
  • Staples
  • Blueshop
  • Best Buy
  • Walmart 
    With the $100 haircut, your price for the remainder of the day is $699.99 CAD. At current exchange rates, that works out to $549.63. So if you're looking for a great deal on the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition in Canada, we have just two words to say to you right now. "Tick, Tock."


For the rest of today, Canadians can take $100 off the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition

Hands down, one of the best smartphones on the market today, IMO. That amazing battery life, awesome physical keyboard and BlackBerry apps/software makes this the best BlackBerry Smartphone ever. Can’t say enough good things about this handset, and I’m just referring to the original. The All Black Stealth Attack KEYᵒⁿᵉ is better due to the slightly better internals. But those Canadian prices are insane.

$1,530 CAD up here for the iPhone X(256gb). With the same money you could buy 2 black edition KEYones and still pocket $130.

It looks stupid... Just like Passport. Honestly I wouldn't buy BB phone, but if it would be Priv or Z30. And considering that the updates may be nonexistent, it's better to avoid BB's devices.

Looks are truly subjective, that's for sure. As for the second part of you're post - I don't know if trolling for attention or you just didn't do your homework before posting. Blackberry has been awesome so far with Android security updates. And as far as OS versions are concerned, the KEYone's are said to be getting Oreo.

He’s definitely trolling for attention. Look at when he joined up.

BB promised updates for Priv and it seems to be forgotten... True hurts, I know... And since when time of joining = trolling? You just sound like an idiot...

BlackBerry never promised full OS updates past the two year life mark for any of their smartphones. However, the PRIV is still getting monthly security patches, something that’s more important than full OS updates, IMO. Now post a link proving BlackBerry made the promise you claim they did, or you’re just spewing FUD. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.... You just signed up, and are posting uninformed FUD on a BlackBerry article. Yeah, you’re trolling. And it’s *Truth hurts, not True hurts.....you’re welcome. Lol, you can’t spell, but I’m the idiot? Pot, meet kettle.
