    BB Motion Now Available

    I know this is a bit of a 'niche' device and few would be interested in it, but the BlackBerry Motion BBD100-2 is officially now on retail sale. Currently Best Buy and Blueshop are carrying it online but Amazon, Staples and Walmart will start selling it on the 12th for $599.

    It has LTE Bands 4, 7, 12/13, & 66.

    (Sorry about the single post, I looked for the thread for devices w/B66 but it's too far back and I gave up! )

    Note: I just ordered one for $559 from an official distributor in the Toronto area. I get the impression they usually only sell to corporate accounts as they don't have much of a retail presence but they are reputable and known for excellent customer service. If anyone's interested I'll be more than happy to forward their details on via PM.

    Let us know if LTE is blocked like it is on other BlackBerry devices.

    I have been assured by both Freedom and BlackBerry Mobile that it won't be blocked.

    *EDIT*

    Opted to pick device up, will be able to report back in about 45 minutes-an hour from now (12:25 Eastern).

    Can confirm the Motion works for sure on B66. Will test it over the next few days and report back here after, hopefully see if I can hook onto B7.

    Great to hear the Motion works. Just wondering if you think it's too big? I'm on the fence liening more towards a Keyone. Does the Keyone receive a LTE signal too on FM?

    Well I was told my KEYone should get LTE band 4 with FM. It cannot for some tech reason. I can get it using an engineering mode I found online so that's great but disappointed I couldn't get it without the mode. It's made quite a difference getting LTE band 4 speed wise. I don't know when band seven is coming out to see if that works.

    I was concerned with the size too but it doesn't feel so big once you get it in your hands and start using it. It's a bit lighter than I would like but that's something I can get used to. It definitely is a well built device and feels really comfortable in the hand. I haven't had too much of a chance to use it yet but I intend to do some real exploring into it over the weekend.

    I was a bit concerned about whether I would have LTE issues but was optimistic B66 would make all the difference, and it has! Connected immediately with no messing about.
