You can now pre-order the U.S. version of the GSM BlackBerry Motion from Amazon

Earlier today, we told you that the BlackBerry Motion, TCL's latest handset branded with the BlackBerry logo, will launch on January 12th via Amazon and Best Buy. This is the GSM model of the phone which means that it will only work in the states on AT&T and T-Mobile. If that is okay with you, Amazon is now allowing consumers to reserve the Motion by pre-ordering it from the online retailer's website.

There are some nice features on the Motion that no BlackBerry has ever had before, including an IP67 certification rating. This means that the handset can be submerged in water as deep as 3.3 feet for as long as 30-minutes, and emerge unscathed. Try that on your BlackBerry Storm 9530! The 5.5-inch display sports new anti-scratch protection (although many of you might prefer anti-itch), and the phone is powered by the largest capacity cell to ever set foot inside a BlackBerry phone, 4000mAh. Combined with the energy sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset, battery life is tremendous.

You can pre-order the BlackBerry Motion from Amazon by clicking on the sourcelink. The price of the handset is $449.99, and shipping is on the house. If you're into physical keyboards, you might want to see what BlackBerry has up its sleeve later this year. The company has said at CES to expect two new models to launch this year equipped with a physical keyboard. That comes after the company had one of the sleeper hits of 2017 with the BlackBerry KEYone.
