DirectD has just announced the availability of the BlackBerry KeyOne for preorders. A few online retailers are also offering this BlackBerry phone as well.
A hardware keyboard for the die-hards
In reality, most people have moved on, embraced touchscreens. Yet for the holdouts who still want the tactile feel of a hardware keyboard, then the BlackBerry KeyOne offers that alongside a Snapdragon 625 processor, DTEC security, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and a passable 12MP rear camera alongside an 8MP front camera.
The phone is expected to ship by end-May and DirectD is selling it for RM2688 and throwing in a JBT T450BT wireless Bluetooth headset. The units all come with a one-year warranty from Brightstar Malaysia. You can either visit the nearest DirectD store or preorder the phone online here.
For those who prefer 11street and Lazada, the phone has also popped up online there as well. As to whether it is worth buying, we reviewed the phone here.
