    Hmm. It doesn't seem like a good strategy to announce a new color for last year's phone while showing a glimpse of the next gen phone coming soon.
    I dont think what they did all these while seems like a good idea to many of us
    I too was kind of waiting for key3 to buy soon...but maybe it seems I should be happy with silver key2 or maybe red, if it looks good

    I'm pretty sure it will be a limited release red Key2. I don't think that there will even be a mention of a Key3. But don't worry, it's still coming. Just much later than most would like.

    Me too. My K1 is 18 months old and I want to replace it at the 2 year mark. I hope K3 is available then. It's been my pattern to skip every other device generation.

    You gotta admit... a completely tricked out Atomic KEY2 would be a killer looker! And if they somehow made the keyboard red as well to match? Fuhgetaboudit!

    Actually, atomic frame around a black keyboard would still work for me... now I'm excited for MWC!

    And if there's a spec bump (pure wishful thinking on my part) then BBMo can take my money now!!!

    Ok i am a fan of pkb, and I have the Key2 from day one.

    But wanting 800€ for the red edition in 2019 is ridiculous. Sorry.....that more than a brand new Galaxy S10e.

    It's also a much more interesting phone for many of us than the Samsung. A phone is more than its parts and specs.

    OMG - Yes we all here know that. And because of that I spent 750€ when the Key2 came out. I knew i am part of a ninch market and for me it gave/gives me more value than a Sammy at that time, ok.

    Its 2019 nothing has really changed on the phone - Can you (at least) try to understand that it is a dangerous thing (in terms of media coverage etc) to release a phone like that with that prize tag?

    Your argument that it is a more interesting phone is also true for the much cheaper Key2 le. So you have to ask yourself why 800€?

    And your answer 'well you dont have to buy it' is not a justification nore interesting. The same argument holds true if theyd say 1Mrd€, get it.

    I don't understand the hand-wringing in the price of the Red KEY2. BBMo now has almost two years of sales data from the KEY phones, and their analysts are able to estimate a pretty accurate demand curve https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demand_curve for this phone from that data.

    They have chosen a price point to generate a certain amount of revenue for a given sales volume. That's their job. Our job as consumers is to either but the phone or not.

    Obviously they would sell a higher volumes at a lower price, but that's just as obviously not their goal. People who want to compare specs for a given price are not in BlackBerry Mobile's target demographics. They want to sell a highly differentiated niche phone for a premium. Either that appeals to you or it doesn't in this case.

    Why did you spend 750€ ? Which Key2 did you get? I though it was 650€ at intro?

    The media coverage may just be why it’s done. BBMo/TCL isn’t dripping with cash to generate meaningful advertising on per device unit basis. No such thing as bad PR nowadays, just ask my President about that.....

    See... you’ve got money to burn, as the rich always do... I know, that how the rich accumulate their wealth...... When you quietly purchase the RED, come back and give us the review.......

    Serious, I’m sure this is more about creating a limited edition run with the buzz it generates..... It does harken back to better days.....
