Sprint becomes first U.S. carrier to sell the BlackBerry KEYone

The BlackBerry KEYone has officially landed on Sprint, the first U.S. carrier to sell the premium mid-ranger with a full keyboard. Hopefully, Verizon will be next to add availability.

The BlackBerry KEYone has been available for months already on international markets, but just today, made its way over to Sprint in the United States. This is the first carrier in the land to carry the device, that we believe, is one of the best that money can buy. You can purchase the phone unlocked from BlackBerry directly, but only your GSM networks are supported, such as T-Mobile and AT&T.

Given that it has been over a month since the BlackBerry KEYone released and Verizon hasn’t yet added the model, we would be surprised if they ever do. Meaning, that the BlackBerry KEYone will be a Sprint exclusive.

Sprint is selling the BlackBerry KEYone right now on its website, however, those looking to pick one up in stores will have to wait a few more weeks until units arrive. The carrier is selling the BlackBerry KEYone for 18 monthly payments of $22 (installment payments). Buyers who want to pay upfront can hand in $528 in exchange for the model. This is being offered for slightly less than the unlocked version, which costs $549. Head to the link below if you’re interested in the product.
