Who had a Blackberry back in the day? You can’t see but I’ve got my hand way up in the air, as I’m sure many of you do as well. This proudly Canadian company cornered the market on the OG smartphone concept years ago, and now they’re back with an even sexier suite of devices, powered by Android and ready to take the world by storm. And we’ve got one to give away to one lucky reader for today’s Day 11 of the 12 Days of Giveaways!
I was a diehard Blackberry fan to the very end. I had every incarnation of the device, from the Pearl to the Bold, to the Torch, with the touchscreen z10 being my last device. It was only the lack of access to apps that made me stray from that brand loyalty, and I delved into the world of Android and got to play with some really great devices from some fantastic brands. But now, my former brand favorite has partnered with my trusted OS, and I have been reunited with the Blackberry of today.
2017 marked the launch of two marquis smartphones for Blackberry: the KEYone and the Motion. Both phones boast beautiful big screens, 12 MP back cameras and 8 MP selfie cams (both with flash), and mind-blowing battery life (up to 26 and 32 hours, respectively). They’re water, dust and scratch resistant while still looking sleek and stylish. Both devices are rocking the latest Android software, with the security that Blackberry built its name on. That means you can email, message and work with impunity while also downloading every app under the Google Playstore sun, including INSTAGRAM (OG BB users will understand how important that is).
Now a full touch screen convert, I’ve fallen in love with the new Blackberry Motion. With all the bells and whistles you’d come to expect on a 2017 mobile device, the Motion is the Blackberry we needed back in 2013. But good things come to those who wait, and I for one am thrilled to be back with Blackberry again. I’m also thrilled to be giving away a device to one lucky reader!
For fans of the classic Blackberry with its physical keyboard, we’re giving away the Blackberry KEYone. With its 4.5 inch touchscreen, full physical keyboard, impressive battery life and killer camera, this phone is perfect for the busy professional on the go who also wants to keep their social media presence as slick as ever. Enter to win below, and head over to Blackberry’s website and socials to learn more about this device.
