Description

BlackBerry KEYone is a unique Android smartphone that bets heavily on classic BlackBerry staples, such as a physical QWERTY keyboard and enhanced security features, in a bid to win back the hearts of former fans of the brand and secure itself a slice of the corporate market as well. The KEYone is a device that lacks mass-market appeal, but strives to make up for it by introducing a set of distinctly different features that you won't find anywhere else.
