You most likely wont be able to buy it in IRELAND but there is still plenty of fans who like their smartphones and Blackberry today announced their KEY 2. All is not lost if we want to get one though and it can be done direct or with virtual online addresses.

Blackberry today announced the successor of the KeyOne obviously we knew the new name but it’s finally here and it looks pretty much the same as before apart from a few changes here and there and in stealth black it really looks good. Having owned the KeyOne it was a really nice device all round and well-built despite its early hiccup with the screen falling off but that never happened to me.

If you want to give up screen estate and prefer keys this is for you but this device limits you just like the past version leaving you out of the game for VR and so on, However fans of old will just love its looks and keyboard which is the best in the business. Upgraded is RAM to 6GB and storage here which is good to 64GB and 128GB. Security in mind they have also introduced digital lockers for additional security which allows you to lock down apps and so on.. It will be available soon for around €579..
