    They did confirm on FB that they will be unlocked, at least in the US.

    So what are the odds that May 18, 2017, which is tomorrow and is supposed to be when we can pre-order in Canada that 1) We don't get an email and 2) That it's postponed again, without an email.
    About 1:1.

    I would think listing direct sale in USA hurts chances for still landing USA carrier.
    Yes, I think you're right. It's a difficult balancing act for BlackBerry Mobile here. My guess is that TCL and the Carriers will wait to see how the Canadian launch goes to gather as much data as possible for their demand models.

    By the time it's available from carriers it's not going to be worth picking up. I believe it's going to be $199.99 on a 2 year term and about $700 plus unlocked from BlackBerry Canada. I was holding out for the Keyone to upgrade from my Passport but I can get a Google Pixel or Samsung S7 edge for free on a 2 year term or even the LG G6 for less than $199.99 on the same term. It's too bad they over priced the Keyone and delayed it's launch because it's probably a great phone but not for that price. Good work BlackBerry you have finally pushed me away and I will be moving on.

    The comment about it being overpriced has beaten to death. KEYone is not over priced for the value you get for the phone

    BTW: Pixel and S7 are not Free just as a $199 phone isn't $199.00.

    Hoping that 18th pre-order holds true for Canada which would bode well for us in the US hoping for good things on the 31st.

    Take care. This phone is only for people that want to pay extra for a PKB anyway.

    LMAO, O heck yeah dude! I hate slabs, didn't even blink over dteks!!! If it ain't got a PKB it ain't worth using, so, what was your point! LOL! A BB without a PKB is like a car without an engine.

    You are free not to buy one, and move on with your life.

    That'll teach 'em!

    Email arrived today for the US. No pre-orders as expected but clear reaffirmation of the May 31 date for availability.

    Without strong carrier commitment, they need to sell direct to take care of their consumers. I hope they sell 1M units direct and clear $100m in direct profits. To heck with the carriers.

    Wow in Canada I only got an email that I can pre-order it from Rogers, whom I'm not even a customer of, and do not want a locked version. ARGHH.
