The BlackBerry KEYone is one of the most interesting handsets showcased at this year's edition of MWC (which hasn't ended yet). Unlike most of today's smartphones, the KEYone sports a rather small 4.5-inch display and a hardware QWERTY keyboard below it. In some ways, this is like a BlackBerry handset from the company's good old days.
Shortly after the KEYone was announced at MWC 2017, we wanted to know your opinion on it. So we published this poll, asking you if you're planning to buy the device. As you can see in the poll results below, 44.14% of voters are seriously leaning towards purchasing this new BlackBerry, while 18.41% are not sure yet. On the other hand, 37.45% of voters said that they wouldn't buy the KEYone. Nevertheless, the overall results are quite encouraging, though it remains to be seen if the smartphone will generate enough sales to be considered a commercial success.
As a reminder, the KEYone is the fourth BlackBerry-branded phone to run Android (and, by the way, that's Android 7.1 Nougat with extra security from BlackBerry). It will be available unlocked in the US starting April, costing $549. To find out more about the new device, feel free to check out our BlackBerry KEYone hands-on preview.
