Any die hard Blackberry fans awaiting the KEYone?

For the ones who haven't seen or heard of the phone...

I wouldn't say I am a die hard fan, but I am eager to see a KEYone, with the potential to buy.

I still miss the use of a tactile hard keyboard.

Hope they introduce the phone at a reasonable price. Blackberry does not have a good track record of introducing phones at a competitive price.
They do reduce the price after a few months, but then the demand and interest in the product has also died

The last two balckberry's i owned - z10 and a passport developed problems within a year. Despite that i would still like to continue with blackberry, but for the fact that the service centre took 2 months to repair / replace the phone.

I'm a big fan of the physical keyboard and will end up buying the KEYone i guess.

OT are there any phones with a physical keyboard these days?

Thank you for sharing this. I am now eagerly looking forward to the launch of this BB as nothing but nothing comes close to the feel and ease of typing on the BB keyboards.
My Father and myself both used the Torch and while he stayed loyal by getting the Classic and then the Priv. I moved to One+ and now the Pixel. The DTek twins did not impress me enough to move back but this looks and I am sure will feel nice to hold and use just as the Priv does. Have registered on the site for further intimations etc.

Continuing my early post on the Keyone

There are loads of reviews on youtube

This review covers it quite in-depth

Any users on T-BHP yet to get the phone? Or got one?

Would love to hear from them!

I for one am longing for a phone for typing on a physical keyboard! Waiting for the launch in India!

Looks like blackberry fans in India have some good news.
https://www.google.co.in/amp/phonera...-in-india/amp/

This article states that an upgraded version of the Keyone will be launched in India in the next month!

I'm using the iPhone 6 since the last two years. Wanted to change my phone 6 months back but was waiting for the next big iPhone, which I don't think will be here anytime soon. So looking for a new phone and came across Keyone on YouTube and I'm fascinated with the phone.
Not a die hard BB fan, but have used the curve and Bold series extensively. Currently the main reason that I'm looking forward to buy Keyone is because I suffer from hyperhidrosis (extremely sweaty palms) because of which the touch responds strangely and typing becomes a huge pain. So the only solution to my strange problem is the Keyone
The reviews inspired confidence with the traditional bb qwerty keyboard and a great battery life. I think this could be my next phone for sure!!

Here's a video speed test comparison of the KEYone with the Samsung Galaxy S8!



Although the processors of these phones are not directly comparable, the test does give a fair idea that the BB is no slow kid. Considering that the BB is not built primarily as a multi-media device to play games on!

Blackberry Phones and Services in India-imageuploadedbyteambhp1499471895.594759.jpg

Ever since the Passport was launched it always intrigued me.But with no Google play services ,never gathered the courage to buy it.

Kept following the thread on crackberry which detailed the ways to get Google play services on the passport. Finally decided to give it a try and ordered one off Amazon for $188.

The phone got delivered a day back and first thing I did was to get Google play running on it . Going to try it for few days and if it doesn't work for me , will switch back to the ever friendly 7 plus.

The rumors were true.

The first Blackberry with a dual SIM is going to be here next week.
On Amazon on Aug 8

I just happened to buy a Blackberry Priv last week, 2 days before the announcement on Amazon.

Will have to wait a bit before I buy the KEYone
