After being available for pre-order for almost two weeks, this new BlackBerry flagship that features a full QWERTY keypad is finally reaching select Best Buy physical stores, as well as Amazon and BestBuy.com.

Starting today, those not sure about pre-ordering a phone without having a hands-on experience with it can finally take the new BlackBerry KEYone for a spin. After a small delay, this premium handset is now available for purchase in the US online and can also be found in select Best Buy retail stores.

TCL Communication reveals that US customers get two unlocked variants of the BlackBerry KEYone. One will be optimized for GSM networks such as T-Mobile and AT&T, while the other comes with CDMA support for Verizon Wireless. Sprint is expected to have this handset in its portfolio later this year as well - by the end of the summer, to be more precise.

BlackBerry KEYone has a price tag of $549.99 USD. It offers a 4.5-inch IPS display with 1,080X1,620 pixels, is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage. Only available in black, it comes loaded with Android 7.1 Nougat.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
