With the BlackBerry KEYone now available from Vodafone, the folks at Your Ready Business recently sat down with Logan Bell, Senior Product Manager BlackBerry Mobile, TCL Communication, to discuss the Android-powered Smartphone and why it's designed for businesses.
"The business person's friend is back." BlackBerry has always held a special place in the hearts of people who do business. The functionality, the security features, and slick design made it the obvious choice for anyone who wanted to work harder, stay safer and make the right impression.
Well, the phones you knew and loved are gone, replaced by something bigger, brighter and bolder, but still retaining the iconic BlackBerry features you know and love. That's right; the keyboard is back.
There have been a lot of changes though, including the biggest battery on a BlackBerry phone… ever. So, you get 26 hours of mixed use – watching videos, calls, emails – it's an all day battery. It's ideal for remote workers who are always on the go. If you've ever been in a situation where your battery is dying, and you can't find a plug for a quick charge, then you'll definitely appreciate it. And assuming you do manage to drain the battery, the Qualcomm Quick charge 3.0 feature charges the KEYOne up to 50% in just 36 minutes.
The full blog post (and video) cover a lot of the features most CrackBerry readers already know about the KEYone but in case you're not familiar or are looking for more info about the KEYone, you'll want to hit play and read the post.
