Bring back the BlackBerry slider

Bring back the BlackBerry slider

The BlackBerry KEY2 is an brand new phone trying to coexist with an old-school form-factor, and struggling all the way. When it comes to capturing nostalgia, TCL - which has been licensing the BlackBerry brand for smartphones since 2016 - has done an excellent job.

BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Growing keys, shrinking audience

BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Growing keys, shrinking audience

If we're giving out awards for smartphone dedication in the face of modernity, the BlackBerry KEY2 should probably get a spot on the podium. TCL's 2018 flagship continues to obstinately buck the trend for full-touch, refining its physical keyboard and still promising a compelling trifecta of QWERTY, security, and reliability.

BlackBerry KEY2 first look

The BlackBerry KEY2 is an obstinate phone, and one defined by its most retro feature: the keyboard.

BlackBerry KEYone successor “Athena” renders leak out

BlackBerry KEYone successor “Athena” renders leak out

If you thought that BlackBerry, technically TCL, was done with QWERTY phones, then this latest leak might prove you wrong. Provided it’s accurate, of course. Renders of what is allegedly called the BlackBerry “Athena” have just popped up, suggesting that the phone maker is going to give the classic BlackBerry feature one more try, despite mediocre, though not exactly bad, market performance. It does seem, however, that the BlackBerry “KEYtwo” will at least be adopting modern smartphone trends while fortunately keeping one other classic feature.
