The BlackBerry KEYone has done a pretty good job of filling the keyboard phone niche, however large that might be. And TCL, the device's manufacturer, has even improved the build quality since launch. In the United States, the only carrier offering the KEYone has been Sprint, but AT&T is about to join the QWERTY party.
Starting on September 1, the KEYone will be available for purchase from AT&T. It will be sold for $16.67 a month for 30 months on AT&T Next, and presumably somewhere around $00 full-price.
To sweeten the deal, the carrier will be selling an exclusive 'Space Black' model, seen in the above video. Hopefully AT&T won't be quite as aggressive with bloatware on the KEYone as Sprint.
The business-ready BlackBerry is back. Business customers can soon buy the all-new BlackBerry KEYone from AT&T. It’s a modern Android 7.1 Nougat smartphone made for today’s professional. The smartphone will be available for sale on 9/1.
The BlackBerry KEYone is durable, highly secure and equipped with a long-lasting battery (up to 26 hours of mixed-use time1). BlackBerry KEYone also supports Android for Work, and is validated for compatibility with the leading Enterprise Mobility Management platforms.

You may remember the keyboard is one of the features that sets BlackBerry smartphones apart from others. The BlackBerry KEYone’s Smart Keyboard goes beyond typing. You can program up to 52 shortcuts and use it as a trackpad.
Worried about security? The Smart Keyboard is also home to the world’s first keyboard-embedded fingerprint sensor located in the spacebar. This gives you more control over what personal information you share for added security and convenience.
