BlackBerry KEYone coming to Telus in April

BlackBerry KEYone

The BlackBerry KEYone, which is manufactured by TCL Communications, was shown off in greater detail yesterday at Mobile World Congress.

It’s expected most Canadian carriers will show some level of support for the KEYone, but today, Telus is first out of the gate by stating it will add the device to its lineup in April. Unfortunately, Canadian pricing is still a mystery. The BlackBerry KeyOne will retail for $549 USD, which is about $720 CAD.
