UK retailer Clove estimates BlackBerry KEYone availability between May 22-26
We’re expecting some official news from BlackBerry this week regarding US price details of its latest handset, the BlackBerry KEYone. Ahead of that, online retailer Clove has provided some new details on the availability situation in the UK.
Reportedly, only one major retailer will receive inventory for the KEYone in time for its May 5 release. “All other retailers, including Clove, will get a share of the next batch later in May,” a Clove customer representative told PocketNow. They estimated this would be sometime between May 22 and 26.
Meanwhile, Carphone Warehouse and Unlocked Mobiles still suggest a May 5 shipping date on their websites — so it’s not clear whether this just hasn’t been updated or whether Clove has been misinformed.
The BlackBerry KeryOne is available for pre-order in the UK for £499. It comes with a 4.5-inch display, an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, with microSD card support up to 2 TB. It also includes a 12 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, 3,505 mAh battery, and a physical keyboard.
We’ll keep an eye on this situation as it develops, but if you have pre-ordered the device at any of the aforementioned retailers, don’t be surprised if it’s not on your doorstep come May 5.
