Unboxing the BlackBerry KEY2 LE

The newest member of the BlackBerry Mobile family lands in our hands.

UTB Blogs welcomes the newest member of the BlackBerry Mobile smartphone family. The BlackBerry KEY2 LE has landed in our hands, and it’s time to start our coverage of the newest device.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE is the more affordable version of the BlackBerry KEY2. Arriving without the metal construction, and without the capacitive keyboard, the KEY2 LE currently carries a price tag of $449.99 at Amazon and Best Buy.

Upon receiving the device, I rushed to record a quick unboxing video. In the following video you will see what’s in the box, and my first impressions of the physical design. Since the unboxing, I have been using the device as my daily driver, and I already have much to say about the device. Look for upcoming videos where I break down those things I like, and the things I like not so much. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel so you don’t miss upcoming KEY2 LE videos.
