Now, the important thing: the price. By your processor fits well within the upper middle range of today, however its price will be somewhat higher than expected, reaching cost USD $549. Expensive, cheap? Of course, you will have to wait to try it and see it in action, however priori value seems a little high.
Anyway, it’s a phone made by and for the purists and fans of the BlackBerry brand, although now developed by the Chinese firm TCL to whom RIM licensed the brand.
The BlackBerry KeyOne will be released in April.
