Sold out already. BlackBerry delayed the launch three months to fix their supply chain issues and it turns out it wasnt even ready for the May 31st deadline. Amazon didnt even have the CDMA version in stock. So 31 May turns out to be the pre-sale date.
Something else was going on behind the scenes, and it was never related to stock. Looks more and more like those rumors of the software team not being able to actually write code were right. BlackBerry lied to us again.
Oh BlackBerry, another botched release. Never change.

Anonymous, 31 May 2017Motorola among the first in mobile, not fair compare with blackberry, even iphone cant winWhat do you mean by even iphone cant win?? Moto z play has the same chipset and nearly the same battery, that why I am hoping to get similar battery life. If you check phonearena's battery benchmark, they say Keyone battery life is waaaay better. Maybe GSMarena should double check their score. A bit suspicious.
this phone if for those people who are bus with their life earning money, not for those who play games all the time doing almost zero positive to his life
Only problem of this device is it's aspect ratio,3:2 is too wide for gaming apps though this phone is not made for that
I hope this phone does change things for brand like BlackBerry,it's an excellent mobile and feels much better than earlier takes by BlackBerry, specially like BlackBerry. Priv ,and specially the back,not glass back on premium phones these days which can break or crack easily , scratches are much better than cracks
I have try the phone for more than week and I believe you need to check your battery review as it's really grate from what I see in your evaluation
Non sense? hahahaha have you even own an Xperia, own one first before you type some craps, tired of you haters saying it sucks at lowlight but doesn't know its superiourity exist in Manual in which GSMArena FINALLY proves it.

most of the youtube review was saying about its battery life. I was waiting for gsmarena endurance rating. By seeing endurance rating of 81%,i am confused about this battery life.
zodiacfml, 30 May 2017Can someone type words efficiently using the physical keyboard? This wasn't addressed in the ... moretry typing without ur eyes on the screen on a regular smartphone and then compare it with physical keyboard, thats where it shines. Accuracy is definitely gonna be higher. For myself, i never learned how to swipe typing on touchscreen, so with a physical keyboard I will type faster as well as more accurate.
AnonD-368020, 30 May 2017I think price needs correction as at 550 $ you can get really really great phones as compared ... moreso very true! specially when BB is trying to get a foothold on the market dominated by touchscreens. not to mention that everything on this phone screams midrange! from processor to the camera.
Fantastic phone. Very loud. You won't miss a call or alert. I don't know what this reviewer was going on about. Must be his unit. The speaker is as good and sometimes better than most dual speakers.
Unfortunately I had to sell mine. It's let down by android badly finished System.
Bring back BB10. That can run google apps. And we have the best phone in world
Can someone type words efficiently using the physical keyboard? This wasn't addressed in the review, except that they stated that it has short term learning curve
