The BlackBerry KEYone Release Date Delayed to May


The latest smartphone from BlackBerry, the KEYone, was expected to arrive in April but this dream was crushed with recent tweets from Steve Cistulli, general manager of TCL Communication’s NA. He quoted,

“Production is underway, but we want to be certain we can meet our customer demands and avoid disappointing stock-outs 4” and “Therefore the U.S. and Canadian KEYone launches will be in May 5/”.

Company CEO John Chen had to announce the delay during their company fiscal Q4 2017 earnings call. He stated that the phone would ship sometime after May. TCL, the Chinese firm that partnered with Blackberry to manufacture nd market the phones across the globe is expected to start producing the devices beginning at the end of April.

John Chen quoted, “We just launched two phones, or we helped our partners launch two phones. One in Indonesia and that one is shipping already. The second one, that TCL announced at Mobile World Congress which is the physical keyboard on an Android, that one is not going to be slated to ship until probably the May timeframe. I think the first manufacturing production run is at the end of April. So the product looks pretty good, but the worldwide availability is going to be later than May.”
