But, It is upgraded in terms of software and hardware. Alongside, You will get a memory capacity of 128GB, an updated Hub+ software and of course an updated price tag.

Everything’s fine, but still, I do not get what is physical keyboard doing at this point of time where touch panels are mainstream. But yes, How can I not realize its Blackberry. And BlackBerry phone always stood for three things: a physical keyboard, long battery life and secure software. So my question to you is, Will you ever ditch your modern smartphone ( What I mean is iPhone or Android device) for Blackberry’s Key 2?
