Call me crazy but I have loved physical keyboards way more than digital ones ever since trying a physical keyboard when I was asked to review the BlackBerry Bold 9900 years ago. So I’ve been waiting for BlackBerry to release their Android phone with a physical keyboard.
The official release date was May 31st and so far only one store in Kuwait has it, and their selling it for a ridiculous 229 KD (it should retail for around 170KD). If you can shell out an extra 60 KD and can’t wait until the price goes down, here’s a [purchase link] to the Mobile 2000 store.
There’s a lot I like about this phone, huge battery life that can go up to two days and a unique custom button that I’ll probably use for quick access to enable the phone’s flashlight. The biggest takeaway however, is that every key can be used as a shortcut. For example, you press T, it opens twitter, F for Facebook and so on.
If anyone knows a store selling the BlackBerry Keyone in Kuwait at a reasonable price, please leave a comment or [contact me].
