Although it certainly hasn't been any secret that Sprint will be offering the BlackBerry KEYone to their customer base, the date of availability has until now remained at 'this summer'. According to a new posting coming from the Sprint Community Forums, though, Sprint customers looking to get their hands on the BlackBerry KEYone will be able to do so starting on July 14 through direct shipments and all other channels kicking off sales on July 28.

Sprint will be the first U.S. carrier to officially offer the BlackBerry KEYone in-store, which is great not only for Sprint customers but also those looking to get up close and personal with the BlackBerry KEYone as well, as you should be able to swing by a Sprint store and check out the KEYone first hand. We'll be keeping our eyes on the Sprint site to see when the KEYone goes live, but for now, we at least know it's right around the corner. Have you been waiting for Sprint to snag a BlackBerry KEYone?
