    Not sure I can justify the 40% price premium. I suspect I might be buying a BE KeyOne tomorrow

    Not me! Beautiful phone, good specs, but the price is not right to make me leave my passport!

    How much can we get for a keyone today? Anyone tried to sell one? (seeing around $300 on craigslist).
    Then think if K2 is worth the difference

    Sure they could. Just people would complain about the higher price. They’re not a charity. If you don’t like what they’ve made, you’re not target customer. They’re making a single device for the largest probable number of profitable sales. Like how Ford is going to almost complete truck line. Companies have learned to do what they’re best at. It must be profitable. If not, shut it down.

    But they charge it so high anyway. For what? Terrible quality. My keyone's back cover has detached itself. I expect best quality from this expensive device.
    And with Key2 they went even higher with the price. For a device with the same screen size (recycling from the unsold Key1??). Terrible.

    If it came to light that for tcl/blackberry to be profitable this year in order to continue to build successor phones, that they had to use the same panels from the first gen, would you then be OK with it?

    Or do you want fresh new specs and hardware with every iteration?

    That was never what blackberry hardware was about. And i gotta disagree with saying the keyone was expensive.. maybe if you paid the early adopter price when you got it...

    My love for phones with keyboard started with Passport, a phone by then stumbling BlackBerry but a great phone non the less.
    I dont know how to type on those typicial glass slabs so that should make me their (BB) target customer. Its sad to think that I am not privy to critique those ,IMO, bad quality phones from Alcatel (TCL) and demand a much better product consistent with BlackBerry phones of old times. Especially for that ridiculously high price.
    I bought the Keyone only to discover the phone has so many faults: bad call quality, bad bluetooth, poor wifi range, poor signal strenght, laggy and unpolished OS, bad build quality, very poor camera software ... Its not acceptable and I demand a better product.

    I was at the NYC event last night. The Key2 felt great and the feel and use of the PKB for me was like using my Passport and Bold 9900. I loved it and my only problem now is whether to go with the silver or black. Problem with the black is that most phones are that color, so I feel it doesn't stand out as much.

    I am still at a loss for which color to chose when I pre-order this.

    Typing this from my ridiculously small PRIV keyboard that I still love.

    I have written many times that unless the Key² offers substantial improvements over my KEYᵒⁿᵉ I will pass. In the 3-4 years I bought the Passport, my wife a PRIV and then the Motion, and a KEYᵒⁿᵉ for myself. So I must have spent close to $2,000.00 on phones. Not a slight hit to the wallet.
    That being written, after reading and watching hands-on reviews of the Key² and the remarks about the keyboard, I am reconsidering my position on this.
    Since I use my phone for work and belt out a lot of emails along with replies the keyboard improvements (key size and matte surfacing) looks promising. Anything to make it easier for all the typing I do.
    I can't say I'm impressed with implementation of the special key, I would prefer to just be able to tap it, not hold it down, to use its features. Perhaps a future update could change that.
    All in all it is a phone that might change my mind.
