Blackberry is back in 2019 with another new device for Aussies, the Key2 series which feature that iconic Blackberry Keyboard, as well as a full touch screen and the complete Android operating system.
We saw the Key2 in Berlin last year, and it’s now made its way down under.
Sam Skontos from Alcatel Mobile who bring the Blackberry to Australia says “We are thrilled to be able to make the full BlackBerry KEY2 range available to Australian consumers via Amazon. We have listened to consumer feedback and have been working hard behind the scenes to be able to accommodate Aussie BlackBerry fans, providing them with all the options for getting the iconic BlackBerry device that best suits their lifestyle.
“We know its not one size fits all solution, the BlackBerry KEY2 range will accommodate the diverse needs of Aussie consumers, and deliver a great experience for everyday communication, with access to all the features, connectivity and applications our customers expect”,
The entry level Key2 LE has a polycarbonate design, with the same look as it’s bigger brothers, but is actually the same size, slightly smaller battery and a 13MP + 5MP rear camera set, compared to the dual 12MP cameras on the Key2 Black and Red.
Key2 Red is the special edition, extra memory and a nice red trim and in terms of looks is the pick of the bunch.
They’re on sale at Amazon Australia right now, breakdown of the three are below:
