Carphone Warehouse takes 10% off the price of the BlackBerry KEYone

Carphone Warehouse takes 10% off the price of the BlackBerry KEYone
U.K. online retailer Carphone Warehouse is taking 10% off the price of the BlackBerry KEYone. That takes the handset with the physical QWERTY keyboard and the impressively long battery life from £499 ($648 USD) to £449 ($583 USD). Interestingly, Carphone Warehouse didn't say whether this is a limited time offer, or a permanent new price. The model receiving the price cut is the SIM free unlocked version of the handset.

The BlackBerry KEYone is a great phone for those who push out many emails and texts, thanks to the physical QWERTY keyboard. Typing is faster and more accurate, and this just might be the best physical QWERTY ever found on a BlackBerry, even topping the one on the BlackBerry Bold 9000.

Things haven't gone perfectly for the KEYone as problems with the screen's adhesive have caused some displays to pop out of the frame on impact. But BlackBerry has solved that issue as new models roll off of the assembly line. The only change to the KEYone that consumers have asked for is the addition of water and dust protection to the phone.

Just picked up a BlackBerry KEYone the other day (not from Carphone Warehouse), and I must say, it's an amazing device. The battery life is outstanding, and the camera is really good. I am thoroughly enjoying this handset.

I think it should be priced a little cheaper. I don't think people are going to pay a premium for great battery life with midrange specs. Would probably have done better at $399 if you ask me.

Nobody take what you say about BlackBerry serious. Even if they price the KEYone at $299, you would find reason to complain. This phone is more than just "great battery life and midrange specs". It have the wrong logo for you.

Lol lol lol. You have big infatuation with Meanestgenius, mxyzptlk. Unlike you, I have proof that you are mxyzptlk. Where is your proof that I am Meanestgenius? You just deflect and project from your multiple fake account. You think any person that disagree with you and call out your troll tactic is him. He occupy your every waking thought, mxyzptlk.

Dude, you nailed it. He can't get me out of his head. He has such an extreme infatuation with me that he absolutely must seek my attention, even if it's negative attention. It started with his mxyzptlk account that I forced him to deactivate, and it just copied over to his current accounts like his flash one. He can't even fathom that more than one person go at him because of his excessive trolling. But I'm ignoring him this time around, just to prove a point. I'll leave him for you to drag around the comments section. Now watch him respond with his usual BS and still try to get my attention. Dude is pathetic.

Oh several people have called you out on your multiple accounts, meanest. Don't try to lie and deflect. You even slipped up recently and forgot which account you were using.

Lol, you said "Several people have called me out for my mxyzptlk/batmite/tony_stark/lumbergh/mxyzptlk2 accounts, and I've even slipped up and responded to people using my batmite account, and Meanestgenius has exposed me concerning all of this" wrong.

Do not waste your time with him. He just want your attention because you take up so much space on his little pea head. Allow me to put him in place. You have done enough when you provide great service of making him close his mxyzptlk account.

Lol, agreed my dude. He wants my attention so bad that he's willing to say that you're me in an effort to get it. He's all yours to dismantle.

Do not project. You try and say I am Meanestgenius account because you have many account on here, like mxyzptlk, Flash, batmite, mxyzptlk2, tony_stark, Lumbergh, JakeLee, alphagenius, TheRealGeniusOne, to name a few. You have already been outed, so you now deflect from the truth.

If I am on Carphone Warehouse, I would take advantage of this deal.

10% discount ain't much, but it's a discount nonetheless. Thinking of getting one KEYone just battery life of it, even though my Galaxy A7 2017 has me on steroids in battery life.
