BlackBerry KeyONE News: Release Date And Pricing Details
The KeyONE was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year and was originally codenamed as the BlackBerry Mercury. Today, President and General Manager of TCL Communications, Steve Cistully, tweeted a photo of the KeyONE resting upon its retail packaging. Cistully mentions there will be some "KEY news coming" next week.
BlackBerry had promised the KeyONE to go on sale in April, however, the reason for the delay has not been explained yet, but the company claimed that there had been an "overwhelmingly positive" response to the KeyONE so far, adding that demand for the device has exceeded its initial supply. Originally slated for an April launch, late last month BlackBerry CEO John Chen said that the BlackBerry KeyONE will start going into production by the end of April. Earlier this month, U.K. retailer Clove also mentioned that the KeyONE would launch in Europe on May 5th at a price equivalent to $640 USD. Interested customers must have to wait for at least a couple of weeks for the smartphone to come. The waiting time might be higher for those who don't pre-order from certain retailers.
