    It's at the top of my list. Can't be rooted. Monthly Security updates. Flick physical keyboard. Yes, I'm paying a premium for a lower specced (in some aspects) phone. But I get a better level of security. Plus I may wait for purchase incentives or for the price to come down a bit.
    Totally agree with you. I am now using a BlackBerry Priv and I am happy with it, but to replace my beloved,white BlackBerry 9900 I would have bought more happily the KeyOne, but I was in a rush. The sliding pkb of the Priv is good, but I would like more the KeyOne pkb

    I just checked in GSMArena a comparison between my Blackberry Priv and the new Blackberry KEYone
    The only things were the KEYone surpasses my Priv is a faster GPU, Adreno 418 @ 600 MHz vs Adreno 506 @ 650 MHz (I don't know whether is better or not anyway as this Adreno 506 graphic unit is integrated on Snapdragon 625 and Adreno 418 in 808) and a FM radio.

    Sorry, not going to change my Priv for a KEYone

    I am doubtful: I have the Priv, but I am tempted by the KeyOne because I don't need a big screen to play Gates or madly surfing, and the sliding pkb of the Priv is not so comfortable. The KeyOne would have bene a good compromise

    Don't knock the BlackBerry Q5; it was a very good smartphone and if not for the lack of a few essential applications I would still be using it.

    Oh right the plastic keyboard is what is warranting 300$ premium on price tag, lol
    Oh this is classic! You're saying the phone should be $150? What is wrong with you people? I paid $969 for my unlocked iphone 7 plus and am not ******** and I DOUBT that in daily use, it is any faster in opening apps or browsing the web. Milliseconds faster maybe, but who the hell cares??

    I love the others who say things like "at $499 it would be a no brainer, but at $549, forget it!!"

    LOL WTF?

    If you don't think that this phone is worth the price, please move on and buy something that fits your needs. Why in the world are you still here complaining about the price point? Bitter much?

    Ehh...im getting it and i think its tad much they are asking compared to market. Keyboard only seems premium to us bb users. It will probably sell well of the start then we will continue waiting for the next great device from this team....realistically speaking.

    Yeah. This is quaint device. I am interested in what follows. Hope for flagship specs. Larger screen still look like a BB though.

    I wouldn't make a comparison on anything unless I have the devices in my hand. Promote it , hate it, a little impossible if you haven't even used it. CK has a least held and used is preproduction model and has an idea...seems pretty smitten...could just be his job though. I would like to get a unit and try it out.

    We all kinda know this phone won't sell well,

    Just look at the Xiaomi Mi6 with its TOP notch specs and its price tag and then decide. Was it reasonable to set a 549$ price for a SD625 and other mid specs? I don't think so. BTW, I'll buy the K1 in any case because I nned a keyboard. And no, I don't think that it's worth extra 300$ for a keyboard. IMHO

    I can see it minimizing damage with carrier support, but that doesnt look likely with 0 news on that front. my only fear is buying it for $600 upfront. Then seeing it on Bhphoto in 4 months for $300.

    Except that that BlackBerry capacitive keyboard costs lots to make and that processor with the battery will have a very long battery life.

    ULTRA specs? huh....pricing for ultra specs is like $800 like samsung S8, LG V20, etc. This is price far less. You are just complaining to complain.
    This is what I've been thinking too... "Ultra" spec phones being released are much more expensive than the KEYone, and it is a completely new phone, not just a re-brand. Obviously I'd like it to be cheaper but I think it's priced reasonably for release

    How much really does it cost though? It could be very minimal.
