We'll have plenty more impressions to share in our upcoming review of the KeyOne.

"BlackBerry fans in Canada will be extremely excited to have the BlackBerry KeyOne available in their market", Alex Thurber, head of BlackBerry's mobility solutions unit, said in a statement. It will then be available unlocked in the USA from May 31, priced at $549 and compatible with both GSM and CDMA networks.

The BlackBerry KEYone will also be offered on the company's online store from today, although BlackBerry says that the device has sold out for the time being. As you'd expect from BlackBerry, the handset has a physical keyboard, which is sure to get some heads turning.

He also visited Cuba, China and South America as part of several trade missions aimed at growing exports for Peach State farmers. Perdue served as a state senator in Georgia before being elected governor in 2003 - the first republican governor in 130 years.

The BlackBerry KEYone comes with the signature QWERTY keypad slider below the device, which also embeds a fingerprint sensor on the space-bar as well as capacitive touch on the entire keyboard for scrolling.

TCL's BlackBerry KeyOne, featuring a 35-key physical keyboard, launches in the USA and Canada in May. It will be sold by a number of major Canadian carriers such as Bell, Bell MTS, Rogers, SaskTel and TELUS for $199 CAD when purchased on a two-year contract. Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0 technology enables up to 50 percent charge in roughly 36 minutes.

We've seen a lot of features and specifications in smartphones disappear over the years, and, for all intents and purposes, the physical keyboard is one of them. It also comes with the usual selection of BlackBerry software preinstalled, including BBM and BlackBerry's DTEK software, which is created to keep the phone running quickly and smoothly. Plus, BlackBerry has added its own security features features, making the phone secure compared to any other Android device. Despite being the ancestral home of BlackBerry, the device will launch there later in May. Sure, it runs Android 7.1 Nougat and it's got a touchscreen, but it's still got a bunch of BlackBerry software, and again, that keyboard. It has a 1620x1080 resolution, which works out to 434 pixels per inch, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 graphics.
