Title is the question. Will we be able to pre-order the new BlackDroid KEYone?

Release appears to be sometime in April and according to launch info, CDMA will be available.

Per Blackberry mobile's press release the KEYone will be available through Amazon in a CDMA "Verizon compatable"  variant. Now what that means to Verizon carrying the handset I haven't a clue

No CDMA version on Amazon yet, plus they are sold out. Nothing available within 250 miles on Best Buy, which covers all of NY state and more for me.

BlackBerry® KEYone | United States - Official Website

Link is US site, nothing, but change country to Canada, available there.

Methinks BlackBerry Mobile dropped the ball on this release.

Since the KEYone CDMA version that can work on the VZ network is now available from BestBuy what is the correct process to get the device activated? Online or bring to store?

Should be able to activate online by entering IMEI and also SIM number.

What I usually try first.

Ok, but my current device, a Blackberry Z30, has a micro SIM and the KEYone has a nano SIM. Should I bring it to the store instead?

in that case, yes, VZW will give you a free nanoSIM. Funny, Priv shipped with one.

But my Priv was purchased direct from Verizon.
