Blackberry KEYone

The good news:  Blackberry has confirmed that the KEYone will receive an update to Android Oreo, the latest version of Android released yesterday.

The bad news:  Absolutely no clue when it will happen, joining a slew of other manufactures who plan on but haven’t committed dates for the update.

Android Oreo started rolling out to Google devices yesterday (specifically, those who were registered in the Android Beta program) with a broader rollout happening “soon”.  Several manufactures including HTC, Huawei, Samsung and Sony have already said they will be coming out with update to Android 8.0 but they, like Blackberry, haven’t committed to a date.  That means it could be months away.

At Mobile World Congress back in February, Blackberry made a splash with their physical keyboard, Android powered KEYone.  It was expected that the Blackberry KEYone would ship in March or April but delays caused those dates to come and go.  Now it looks like May 31st is the release date.  The phone will be available unlocked here in the United States and will be priced at $549.  There will be both a CDMA and GSM variant of the phone so you can get one to work with any of the major carriers here in the US.

It is expected that there will be at least one carrier deal here in the US which would allow users to payout the phone if desired. That is likely to come via Sprint but is not confirmed.
