BlackBerry KEY2 London Launch Party


The UK is a huge market for BlackBerry Mobile and at BerryReporter we were lucky enough to attend the recent launch of the BlackBerry KEY2 in London. The event took place at the prestigious Ned Hotel & Bar in central London near the Bank of England last week Friday 29th June.

From those in attendance at the event, apart from the usual tech media scribes and die-hard BB fans was some very special surprise guests including Hollywood actress and Bond girl Naomie Harris. The London native Harris and her guests were seen getting an exclusive demo on the Key2 from BlackBerry Mobile staff and seemed to love the phone’s features. Also spotted on the guest list for the launch party was Crackberry founder Kevin Michaluk, SBTV founder & CEO Jamal Edwards MBE, YouTube vlogger Marcus Butler, singer Josh Cuthbert and former BerryFlow head honcho now BlackBerry Mobile social media guru James Nieves.

The free canapes and cocktails were flowing throughout the night courtesy of BlackBerry Mobile while we were entertained by The SHE All-Stars and DJ Orchestra with a great rendition of several RnB classics. Both Black and Silver BlackBerry Key2’s were on display throughout the evening and we got to spend some valuable hands-on time with the device. Whats our feedback on the new BlackBerry Mobile flagship? Well, we are pleased to report from the limited time that we spent with the KEY2 at the event that it not only felt great in the hand but a lot lighter and faster than its predecessor and the keyboard was also a joy to use.

Look out for more BlackBerry Key2 content forthcoming from the BerryReporter team over the coming weeks as we have several surprises in store for our loyal readers!
