    Did not know that Blackberry was still around but look like there will be a new phone announcement June 7. It is not going to be cheap but at least it is not close to 1k. Specs are not too bad but the keyboard gives it an old fashion look.


    BlackBerry Key2 will cost $649, $100 more than the KeyOne

    I think Government users keep Blackberry in business.

    Choices are always good, but I think it's overpriced at $650. Considering they only sold 850k of keyone phones, I'd start with lower price($500 sounds about right) to attract more customers.

    I kind of like the looks of it. I'm not going to buy one, but it's kind of cool looking.

    I'd get it if VZW would carry it. I'm so over typing on glass.

    Yeah, typing on glass can be inconvenient when it covers the box though I could never get used to typing on a BBC keyboard
