The BlackBerry KEYone is already available in the US, but you can only get your hands on the unlocked version of the device. The problem is that it’s only compatible with GSM networks, so you can’t use it on CDMA carriers like Sprint, for example.
If you’re a Sprint subscriber and have been waiting to get your hands on the BlackBerry KEYone, however, we have some great news: a Sprint support agent has confirmed on the company’s forum that the carrier will start selling a compatible device starting tomorrow, July 14.

However, you’ll only be able to buy it online. Well, at least for the first two weeks. After that, on July 28 to be exact, the BlackBerry KEYone will also be available at Sprint’s retail stores. As of now, there’s no word on how much you’ll have to dish out to get the device though. The unlocked version retails for $550, and we expect that you’ll be able to get it from Sprint for around the same amount. We’ll know for sure tomorrow when it officially goes on sale.
