Remember Blackberry? They’re back. SATORI & SCOUT recently ran a Blackberry KEY1 article and the tech company are now ready to launch their like-for-like upgrade. SATORI & SCOUT were that impressed by the KEY1 that all our studio members are actually Blackberry users now – some with phone models that feature the classic QWERTY keyboard whilst some play caution to the wind and have the more familiar touchscreen kind of smartphone (The Blackberry Motion).
The once super-popular manufacturer used to have a monopoly in selling smartphone devices with its famous QWERTY keyboard equally-popular across many demographics from young to old, male and female. However with the rise of iOS and Android saw the fall of Blackberry, and it is with great pleasure that SATORI & SCOUT are seeing the technology company make strides back to regaining market share. Now offering disruptable technology – who’d have thought we’d say that about a QWERTY keyboard – the even newer KEY2 Blackberry promises such a good run for its money with the likes of Apple or Samsung et al. Are you a former Blackberry fan? SATORI & SCOUT reckons the brand will be picking up old adopters and laggards (and all the other consumer buzzwords) in no time.
With a design somewhat quite similar to the KEY1, Blackberry have continued to push forward it’s distinctively Blackberry aesthetic. Slimmer and lighter than its predecessor, the KEY2 is a really smart phone and a notable design quirk that isn’t initially noticeable to the eye is that the keyboard actually performs scrolling actions just like it were a conventional touchscreen. Feeling and looking everything not Apple as much as it acts like an Apple-generation smartphone, the Blackberry has considered every single corner towards the overall aesthetic whilst giving the user the utmost control over back-lighting and various other screen performance aspects. SATORI & SCOUT are big fans.
Boasting a 12-megapixel, dual-rear camera, document scanner (remember Blackberry is meant to be a ‘work phone’ afterall) and the ever-present security you should always expect from a Blackberry – “BlackBerry offer the world’s most secure Android smartphones. We design them for security from the inside out”, Alex Thurber of BlackBerry’s Mobility Solutions. Entirely focused around personal security and protecting sensitive user data, apps and content, suchlike is so on agenda in today’s day and age with GDPR etc. Keep up the good work Blackberry, fans will be back soon (you’ve already converted us as big fans)
