If you've been trying to purchase the BlackBerry KEYone from Amazon or Best Buy only to find that neither retailer had the device in stock, we have some good news to tell you. The latest BlackBerry flagship model is now back on the shelves at both locations. Both unlocked variants of the phone (CDMA, GSM) are available for shipping now. Amazon has the GSM model for AT&T and T-Mobile priced at $557.25. The CDMA model for Verizon is a little cheaper at $549.99. Over at Best Buy, both models are priced at $549.99.
Those in the U.S. looking to pick up a carrier branded model can head over to Sprint where the carrier has a retail price of $528 for the device. Or, you can commit to making 18 monthly payments of $22 to lease the phone for a year and a half. Last week, AT&T announced that a black version of the KEYone will go on sale starting September 1st. AT&T will ask you to pay $16.67 for 30 months to purchase the handset. This version of the KEYone, in an exclusive Space Black color, is not to be confused with the Limited Edition black KEYone which is available for the moment only in India. The latter features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage compared to the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage found on U.S. models.
But that might change. BlackBerry Mobile has said that it will be making an announcement pertaining to the KEYone at the IFA 2017 trade show in Berlin that starts on September 1st. There has been speculation that BlackBerry Mobile will widen the distribution of the limited edition KEYone to other markets, quite possibly including the states.
