BlackBerry KEYone's FCC approval brings the phone one step closer to its U.S. launch

The BlackBerry KEYone is supposed to be released next month, and the phone recently took one giant step toward its U.S. launch by getting certified by the FCC. The KEYone is supposed to be the last ‘Berry designed in-house, and the company is using its traditional three-row physical keyboard with a number pad on the left. Some consider the physical QWERTY on the BlackBerry Bold 9000 to be the gold standard, and while BlackBerry might fall short of that with its new phone, it is sure to top the QWERTY that is used on the BlackBerry Priv.

Daily Xiaomi Mi 6 rumor (over)dose: Snapdragon 821 and not the 835 in line for initial launch?


Lots of Xiaomi Mi 6 rumors to go around these days, eh? Well, here’s another one to throw into the basket.
