Verizon optimized CDMA version of BlackBerry KEYone to arrive soon at Best Buy

So you've been dying to buy the BlackBerry KEYone. Who could blame you? With the fretted QWERTY Keyboard that makes typing so easy also doubling as a touchpad, and the fingerprint scanner embedded in the Space Bar, the KEYone is all about making the most out of a well-designed handset. And since the phone is powered by the energy sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset, battery life is fantastic.

The BlackBerry KEYone in its unlocked CDMA form will soon be available in this incantation from Best Buy, "optimized for Verizon network support." The unit is priced at $549.99, matching the cost of the GSM model. Once Best Buy starts shipping the device, you will be able to order the KEYone and pick it up inside your local Best Buy store.

Later this summer, CDMA carrier Sprint will be offering a branded version of the KEYone. This model though, will be locked down to the Sprint network.
