Though Telus is selling the BlackBerry KEYone, it’s available only to those who have a business service account with the company. This means that the average consumer can’t actually purchase the device through Telus.
With not even a full day passing since the KEYone has been widely available in the Canadian market, Telus is already notifying its customers a change in this initial plan.
Though the above post doesn’t say when, it appears Telus will open KEYone sales to all consumers in the near future. Telus seems to have seen significant demand for BlackBerry’s new device.
The BlackBerry KEYone features a 4.5-inch display, Android 7.1 (Nougat), Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chip, a 3,505mAh non-removable battery and a 12-megapixel camera with an 8-megapixel selfie shooter.
Though Telus hasn’t specified how much the KEYone will cost, the carrier is selling the device for as low as $0 on contract and $700 without a contract to its business customers.
