    I was excited to see there is an official European BBM site ioffering the KEYone.
    But when I looked closer, I saw they're only selling the silver edition. Why not sell both versions and increase your sales? You can buy both from CPW in the UK for example.

    Secondly there's a big price discrepancy between the GBpound and the Euro.

    In GBpounds it's 499 but in Euros it's 599€!!! The exchange rate today gives you a price of 563.11€ for 499GBP.

    It's 499GBP for the silver and 549GBP for the black 64GB version in CPW.

    Wherever you buy it, paying in euros works out more expensive.

    And now they've announced they're launching in Santa Domingo. Nothing against that island of about 1 million souls, but where's the logic behind the country launches and price strategy?
    Gets more and more bewildering.

    Logic.....

    Selling products to different markets can be very complicated... taxes/duties, laws, support requirements, transportation.

    I suspect production doesn't support both devices at once... thus some markets might not be offered both.

    HERE'S THE REPLY from BBMobile about the NO Black 64GB version:
    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for your interest.

    Unfortunately this model is not currently available on the European market.

    There is no fixed date yet, but it is hoped the phone will be available before Christmas.

    Kind regards

    A very slow rolll-out. and NOT true, if you count the UK (no Brexit yet), you can buy it in an EU country.

    So, maybe a BB Black as Christmas present ...
