Amazon has dropped the price of the BlackBerry KEY2 LE by about $20, bringing it down from $449 to just $429. Still not a super cheap smartphone, but this does mark the first price drop for the KEY2 LE since it was announced back in September. It only went on sale in late October, so seeing any discount here is pretty surprising actually.
The BlackBerry KEY2 LE is a "lite" version of the KEY2 that the company unveiled earlier this year. The major difference here is the build quality, and the keyboard. This one has a plastic frame instead of metal, and then the keyboard doesn't have the shortcuts, or act as a trackpad. That is unfortunate, but it is good to see all of the other features here. It still has a 4.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 636 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There's a 3000mAh capacity battery in there as well that is going to keep it running all day long and then some. The BlackBerry KEY2 LE is a great phone for those that are looking to get a new smartphone, and still want that physical keyboard. It's one of the only smartphones that still has a physical keyboard these days.
