[Deal alert] Get a BlackBerry KEYone for just $449.99 ($100 off)

Monday, November 27th, 2017

If you're still nostalgic for the good times when BlackBerry's physical keyboards were all the rage, the last vestige of this dying form factor is the BlackBerry KEYone, which was announced at MWC early this year. Despite its flaws, Jordan found a lot to like in his review of the device so it could be worth a go at a decent price.

A $100 saving on the MSRP of $549.99 would do the trick, and that's exactly what Amazon and Best Buy are currently offering.

AT&T now offers BlackBerry KEYone in exclusive ‘Space Black’ color for $499.99

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

At launch, Sprint was the only US carrier that sold BlackBerry's KEYone, a unique device with a permanent hardware keyboard as a large chin. That stayed true until yesterday, but now, the phone is also available on AT&T in an exclusive Space Black color for $499.99.

Aside from its new coat of black paint, AT&T's KEYone appears to be the same as any other KEYone. That means you get a 4.5" 1620x1080 IPS display, a Snapdragon 625, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, a 12MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3505mAh battery.

BlackBerry KEYone coming to AT&T on September 1, with exclusive ‘Space Black’ model

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

The BlackBerry KEYone has done a pretty good job of filling the keyboard phone niche, however large that might be. And TCL, the device's manufacturer, has even improved the build quality since launch. In the United States, the only carrier offering the KEYone has been Sprint, but AT&T is about to join the QWERTY party.

Starting on September 1, the KEYone will be available for purchase from AT&T. It will be sold for $16.67 a month for 30 months on AT&T Next, and presumably somewhere around $549 full-price (that's what the unlocked GSM model costs right now).

Sprint says KEYone’s bloatware bug will be fixed in an OTA update

Friday, August 18th, 2017

The KEYone is available as an unlocked phone, and that's probably how most BlackBerry fans will buy it. However, there's a Sprint version, too. Owners of the Sprint version recently reported an aggravating battle with bloatware, which was constantly reinstalling itself on the phone. Sprint has now confirmed this is a bug, and it'll be fixed soon.

According to multiple accounts from KEYone owners, the SprintID app is frequently waking up and checking for the presence of pre-installed apps like Amazon, Audible, Facebook Messenger, and Lookout.

Sprint installing bloatware on BlackBerry KEYone phones, re-installs apps if they are deleted

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Carrier bloatware is always annoying, but Sprint just upped the ante. Sprint is currently the only US carrier selling the KEYone, the latest BlackBerry-branded device manufactured by TCL. Owners of the Sprint KEYone are reporting a huge amount of apps being automatically installed, and they can't be disabled or removed.

On the affected devices, the SprintID system app checks if a collection of bloatware apps are installed, and downloads them if they are not found.

Sprint will be the first carrier in the U.S. to get BlackBerry’s KEYone, available starting tomorrow

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

BlackBerry's KEYone officially launched in Canada a couple of months ago. At the original announcement, TCL (who licenses the BB name) said that the U.S. would be getting its own versions of the anachronistic phone in the months to follow. Starting tomorrow, new and current Sprint customers will be the first to pick up the KEYone here in America.

Besides just the ridiculous stylization of its name, the KEYone features a 4.5" IPS LCD 1650 x 1080 display, a Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 12MP/5MP cameras, a huge 3,505mAh battery, and the latest security patches on top of Nougat.

New BlackBerry KEYone units won’t break as easily

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

The KEYone is the first QWERTY BlackBerry phone manufactured by TCL. Despite having a great deal of software problems at launch, many owners enjoy simply having a modern keyboard smartphone. However, the original batch of devices were not very durable (to say the least), but BlackBerry and TCL have been working to fix that.

You may recall that JerryRigEverything tested the KEYOne shortly after launch, and found that the screen wasn't glued or attached to the rest of the phone.

The BlackBerry KEYone meets JerryRigEverything—it doesn’t go well

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

It's becoming something of a tradition for a new phone to be subjected to durability tests on the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel. We've seen phones like the Galaxy S8 and Pixel come through the testing okay, but phones like the Nexus 6P and HTC U Ultra haven't fared so well. Today, it's the BlackBerry KEYone going under the knife/lighter/hands. Despite a strong start, the KEYone doesn't last.

You should be familiar with the various stages of JerryRigEverything's tests by now.

The BlackBerry KEYone will go on sale May 31 in the United States, in both GSM and CDMA variants

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

The BlackBerry KEYone is a strange phone. Not just because it has a physical keyboard in 2017, long after that feature has gone out of style, but because it commands a rather high price point for that feature. But if you have been waiting to get a KEYone of your own, you will be able to do so on May 31 (which just arrived on the East Coast).

We already knew that the phone would launch on that date in the US, but BlackBerry has just now filled in some of the details.

BlackBerry KEYone review: A tale of a decent phone full of annoyances

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

The KEYone, the latest in the BlackBerry Ltd/TCL collaboration, is a phone that returns to the Canadian brand's iconic roots, for better or for worse. With Nougat and a strong focus on security, the KEYone is aimed at enterprise users and long-time fanatics.

Overall, the spec sheet for this phone is nothing chart-topping. The SoC is over a year old at this point and the screen has been downgraded from the year-and-a-half-old Priv's, but using the KEYone was mostly a pleasant experience until after about a week with it.
