    I was lucky enough to get a pass to the MWC and visit the BBM stand. The young guys there are not 'real' BB owners but were enthusiastic anyway! The girl liked the silver edition and the guy the black! The bronze dual sim is there. In the flesh I thought the colour was too 'dull'. It doesn't stand out especially.
    The news there is that there will be an official launch in 2 weeks, but NOT at the MWC. Hoping for a special glimpse at the Crackberry party tomorrow.
    They said a VIP from the club was at the stand, but didnt know who he was. They didn't recognise Kevin from a recent photo, said the guy who came had longer hair... Kevin, have you changed your looks?!

    More tomorrow... BlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180226_1832179.jpgBlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180226_1853233.jpgBlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180226_1855067.jpgBlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180226_1835060.jpgBlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180226_1853419.jpg

    I'm sure like myself we were all hoping for an announcement from TCL/BBMo at MWC 2018 with regard to the rumored and much anticipated releases for 2018. Unfortunately it appears this isn't going to happen and we will all have to patiently wait for an official announcement sometime in the near future.

    I only hope it's worth the wait... 🤔

    It is amazing that we'll hear something in two weeks time and there are 0 leaks.

    Great content! Thanks for posting your experiences (and I hope you're right about the launch).

    Incidentally, TCL did a good job with the set.

    Sorry if I am mistaken, but it sounds like the launch would be of the different-colored KeyONEs and not for news of upcoming phones. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    It is somewhat enjoyable not knowing what TCL/BBMo will release in 2 weeks as has been reported here. My hope is that it's worth the wait. It is also interesting there hasn't been any credible leaked information as well.

    I'm thinking even the attendees to the KEYone 1 year anniversary event were presented NDA's to sign as there hasn't been a peep from anyone... crickets... 🤔

    Has there been any announcements that require me to be there?

    Nope.

    One could have put the puzzle pieces together of what may/may not have been announced at MWC simply by asking me if I was there/going lol. I don't travel unless it's important. Kevin, however, is there but that's normal since he usually goes every year.

    Right about MWC, but at the BB/CB party on Tuesday after talking to staff from BBM UK and EU there were a few hints about the new phone and launcher. They didn't give much away to their credit as there was plenty of drink available!!
    It looks like the bronze dual SIM will be coming to Europe, but not when. Plenty of advertising for it at the MWC and party.
    Secondly, the next PKB will be an enhanced version of the current KEYone.better CPU, bigger keyboard, screen... And that will be coming in the next few months, not weeks. With Oreo? It's likely.
    Another PKB will definitely be launched, but no details.
    So, if you want a Keyone, it will be worth waiting a couple of months.it's definitely coming.

    The UK guys were asking me for feedback and what BB fans want, and said they are listening and using this information to create the new phones. But within the budget they have and not trying to compete in the same market as a Samsung S9.

    It was good to speak to the actual guys behind the new BBM phones.

    As an aside, I' d like to see the next BBM party more focused on the fans and not like a staff night get together. But good to have the chance to talk to those guys.

    Kevin was there but not feeling too good. Hope you're feeling better and made it home ok. BlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180227_2306076.jpgBlackBerry Mobile in Barcelona-img_20180228_0002238.jpg
