    Learned my lesson already to wait for at least six months for prices to come down to more reasonable levels, so although I'm highly tempted, I'll muster the resolve to wait until probably next year to get the KeyOne.
    The price I paid for my preorder is pretty much the same as the US price which is fantastic even if it's grey market considering the phone not released and usually here new tech marked i
    Uup.

    Let's see how it gets executed

    Hi, i checked out widgetcity, and there is no indication as to when the item will be available. Do they require you to pay even if there is no stock?

    Yep this is how this kind of thing works. The availability was mentioned in a private message between myself and I assume one of their "sales" persons but it seems like everyone is getting messages from someone named Bev.

    They will inform that they have to pre-order the units and that will take some lead time to get them in stock and that they they are expecting last week of March. (So this week lol.)

    I paid about 20% of the cost of the phone to reserve the unit which was about 8000PHP. (159USD)

    As I have mentioned in other threads I do find it a bit too good to be true since we don't even know exactly when that the phone will be released yet however it's an interesting experience.

    I have researched them before I bought and generally they get fair reviews, it's not a scam; as with a lot of these types of shops there are some experiences that might have left a little to be desired we shall see.

    Whether or not this actually goes according to what was promised or indicated remains to be seen but at least I have a possible plan and hopefully a k1 around the time when the phone launches.

    I listed some source material on references for them below.

    Widget City Reviews and Customer Experiences | Widgetcity.com.ph.

    This was one of the reasons I was hesitant to post this link is simply because I have never worked with this particular e-ecommerce/gadget/grey market store before. I have bought and never had issues from Hot Gadgets and Kimstore no problem but they did not have anything regarding Key One so I decided to give this a shot.

    Message them on FB they will call you and text a form to fill out on your details / desires then they will send you methods to secure the deposit ( I did it through BPI app on my phone though unless you set something up you can remit in the branches)

    Bev confirmed my deposit a few hours later.

    Waiting to see how they handle me as I am dubious on getting the phone this week since it's not even been communicated on when it will be officially launched

    Once again haven't used these guys before but they are credible this of course will tested this week

    Hope it helps!

    From Indonesia here, although I doubt it'll arrive in Indonesia. Priv failed to reach Indonesia.

    Probably I'll order one from US when it is available. Easier and faster that way.

    In Shanghai, got my keyone yesterday (import from UK). Works like a charm. I'm on China Unicom. Only things you guys needs to be aware of is that to initialize the phone you need to be under VPN, because it communicates directly with Google. I had a router at my home with VPN integrated and it worked perfectly. I'm just lovin this new BB. I'm right now outside by a pool and the screen visibility under the sun is stuniiiinnnnng. I have my PRIV with me as well and there is no comparison between the 2 phones.

    Somebody on Instagram asked blackberrymobile about availability in the Philippines. The response was to "stay tuned" and wait for announcements on additional regions.

    Yes, it's likely that MemoXpress will sell the KEYone exclusively, if at all. And I agree about the price, BlackBerries are waaaay overpriced in the Philippines.

    The Priv stayed around 45 for from them for a long time even when some of the greys selling it around 25k; I never followed up on it after that so I am sure K1 will be around the same at first if it shows up there.

    You can order from Canada from Rogers network and unlock it

    We have helped many customer visiting from HK unlock Blackberrys that they then take back home

    buy one on ebay ship to you in asia and unlock it if you are in a rush

    or buy from BB directly unlocked as well
