It will be available unlocked in the U.S. starting on May 31st for $549.

BlackBerry Mobile's press announcements today centered around UK and Canada launches of the BlackBerry KEYone but BlackBerry Mobile has also clarified on-sale availability for BlackBerry KEYone in the United States.

The Snapdragon chipset means that the KEYone has a broadband modem that can cover both GSM and CDMA carriers, and BlackBerry just confirmed so, telling us that it plans to release unlocked variants to go on sale in the United States starting May 31. "Our retail strategy is to be where our customers are and, as a multichannel retailer dealing in the premium end of the market, Selfridges reflects BlackBerry KEYone's identity in the smartphone market".
