    Some people have expressed that the KEYone should be all black, no silver bits. Should BlackBerry Mobile release a limited edition, pure black version of the KEYone at a $50-$100 premium like BlackBerry did with the white and red Passports? How much extra is pure black worth to you?
    No!

    I would get an all black one possibility but wouldn't pay more than $50 extra for it if that.

    All black and add in the real top end SOC and 6Gb of RAM. I'd pay extra. But if it's just a color swap, no extra money.

    I think given the market for BlackBerry right now, it would be a manufacturing waste to offer a black version... especially for the price. The silver makes it look more premium, but as far as aesthetics and personal choice, I guess it could have been viable. Personally, I don't think it would look better, and I especially wouldn't pay more money for it.

    I wouldn't pay more for an all black and agree with most above that I don't think it would be smart for them to do that at this point. If it's successful maybe you bring out a special version but not until then.

    Yes an all black version with even better grip than the silver edition and I would pay $50 more but at a $100 like others stated it better come with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Flash.

    Paying any more amount for the same thing only with a different color on the outside does not make sense at all.

    It would look pretty sweet if it was entirely black, with a couple dark grey accents. Or maybe just one thin grey stripe across the back of it

    It doesn't make sense for BB to do this.

    The buyers/supporters had no choice but to pay more because that is the price for them to get a different colour one.

    Sure but we are talking/ limited edition red here . If it was limited to a certain amount of devices I'd be a buyer

    I'd consider a pure black one but would not pay a cent more for it...
    Same to me, I though it would be the first final edition. But may be to have some interest from some Apple's users, pay a little more, can be a good strategy... I don't know but Apple did in past this kind of variations.

    I would get it if it was brushed aluminum BlackBerry colour. I'm talking BlackBerry stain colour kinda a hint of purple sheen in the black. You would only know how it had purple by how the light hit it. And no would not pay more unless it has better specs too.

    I'm going to get a lot of crap at work, and in my social life for my first non-red phone in many years. It's expected of me, and I feel like I'm going to be letting people down.

    Red Passports lasted longer than I'd expected but I'm glad I got mine when I did: they disappeared off the Canadian store literal days later.

    Ukarbon has been a supporter of recent BlackBerry devices , I don't think the KEYone will be much different
