Here’s a surprise: BlackBerry is back with a new handset and it’s pretty good.
I know, I know, you’ve heard this before. Several times over the last few years BlackBerry has attempted to make a comeback and each time it’s come to nothing, so what’s different now?
For the first time the iconic BlackBerry hardware keyboard has been married with Android in the BlackBerry KeyOne. Combine those with several software apps from BlackBerry and the KeyOne is worth a look if you’re shopping for a new smartphone, particularly if you spend a lot of time on email, social media or messaging.
The handset is produced by TCL, a Chinese phone maker that recently acquired rights to the BlackBerry brand for smartphones. BlackBerry, based in Canada, is still responsible for the software.
