Blackberry KickStart in the concrete jungle

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:02PM EST

Yeah, we’re not sure if Canada can be categorized as a part of the “concrete jungle” either, but semantics aside we’re looking at the first full review of the upcoming BlackBerry Kick Start 8220. The first ever flip ‘Berry has been an item of significant interest ever since we leaked the pictures back in April. Not much has changed, with the device still sporting the same clunky styling, large LCD, and Pearl-esque control layout. As far as we know, we’re still on for an early Fall release, so you won’t have to wait too long to get your grubby hands on one. For the time being, however, these shots and review will have to suffice as the next best thing.
