Added 'blue' variant from Nieuwemobiel.
The BlackBerry KEY2 LE has popped up several times now on its way to becoming official but the latest leak of the device, coming from the folks over at Android Police, is the best look and confirmation of specs yet.

The KEY2 LE was always suggested to have lower specs (and price tag) than the KEY2, but according to Android Police, one of the differentiators will also come by way of the keyboard. Rather than having a capacitive keyboard like that found on the Priv, KEYone, and KEY2, the KEY2 LE will skip that feature. Not a bad cost-saving measure, given some folks disable it.
As far as pricing goes, nothing is official yet but Ingram Micro and PC-Canada have the KEY2 LE listed as coming soon with varying prices. Ingram Micro has it listed at $549.99 CAD while PC-Canada has it listed for $519.99 CAD. That's around $419 USD and $400 USD, respectively.
