    The company will also have its full lineup of BlackBerry smartphones, including the BlackBerry KEY2 and KEY2 LE, and will be sharing the latest carrier availability for these devices in the U.S. and elsewhere around the world.
    Press Release

    So this means:
    • No new Blackberry model announcement
    • New US carriers
    • Next Blackberry model will likely have a much-improved display

    Assuming this isn't just a stale advertisement for the KEY2LE on Verizon, applying Occam's razor to carrier availability, when factoring in the variants that TCL cancelled or at least put on the backburner, tells me that if there's any announcement there I'd say it would be the KEY2 for AT&T.

    However, the Verizon Open Development page for the KEY2LE has been pulled, so it may very well be sold first party.

    It mentioned new Alcatel devices, but nothing about Blackberry devices, so I think not.

    Switch from the primarily CDMA carrier verizon to either AT&T ot T-mobile or MVNO's. Simple really. How hard is it to buy direct?

    I may be reading too much into this, but I think this means there will be a new Passport-like KEY3 and a Q10-like KEY3 Micro, both waterproof. Am I wrong?

    Probably, if ever, down the road, into end of year or next year. Life cycle is rumored to be stretched not contracted due to multiple reasons. Bigger KEY3 but not 1:1 and some LE version but not Q10 size as smaller devices aren’t demand curve healthy at these lower production sizes. Waterproof only if not affecting cost. Other features that need improvement have some priority.

    First the long awaited Z50 has to drop. It’s been delayed with 10.3.4 prep load.....

    That's if it isn't just the same KEY2LE on Verizon news from months ago, and knowing TCL that's certainly a possibility.

    You let me enjoy and hope for 36 hours. It’s like buying a powerball ticket and dreaming of winning the night before the drawing.....
