BlackBerry KEY2 SIM Free UK
In 2017, a rejuvenated BlackBerry - the brand now under the stewardship of TCL - released the BlackBerry KEYone.
Part classic BlackBerry with a traditional physical keyboard and part modernised Android device, no-one can doubt that this beautiful chimaera has been a success, selling in high enough numbers for the BlackBerry brand to continue marching on.
An Icon Reborn
BlackBerry hit on a winning formula with the KEYone, so it makes sense to keep the new KEY2 very similar. Very little has changed about the design, with just simple refinements to the casing and keyboard developed to enhance ergonomics.
The QWERTY keyboard itself now has a matte finish and the keys themselves are larger and slightly less pronounced. This makes for a flatter profile and allows for more accurate positioning when using the built-in trackpad for cursor placement.
Screen size remains the same, as do the physical dimensions, although the edges and corners have all been rounded off and softened. The new KEY2 is therefore much more comfortable to hold, plus it's a good 12 grams lighter than the original.
BlackBerry KEY2 is also Android Enterprise Recommended from the moment it's been announced.
