BlackBerry Motion (SIM Free/UK)
Made for real life.
Since BlackBerry's move from their own systems to the Android platform a couple of years ago, they have released a number of smartphones.
Among those is the hugely popular KEYone with a traditional physical keyboard. If you're looking for a smartphone with similar design and security credentials, but with a standard full-touch display, the BlackBerry Motion is your new partner.
Featuring a 5.5" Full HD touchscreen, the Motion runs Android applications in full screen as they were intended. BlackBerry also have their own Android keyboard installed; regarded as one of the most intuitive touch keyboards available.
BlackBerry DTEK security is available, as it is on all Android BlackBerry devices. This provides a robust service that is running from the moment you turn on the Motion, checking the integrity of the OS, applications and potential threats while the phone is on.
SIM Free/Unlocked UK Stock
Clove Technology supply the BlackBerry Motion SIM free and factory unlocked.
This means that you can use it with any compatible global nano-sized SIM card for voice and 3G data. International LTE users outside of Europe should check compatibility with their local operator.
Where a product option states "EU Model", it will have been sourced directly from a European supplier. These phones should come factory sealed with the original BlackBerry mains charger (Europlug 2-pin).
Where a product states "EU Convert", it will have been sourced from a UK supplier that has imported EU stock and converted it for UK sale. These phones will be resealed with official BlackBerry branding and should contain a standard UK charger (3-pin).
Dual SIM options
BlackBerry manufactures the Motion in both single & dual SIM versions. The Dual SIM will also accept a microSD memory card in place of a 2nd SIM card.
If an option for sale on Clove Technology specifies "DUAL SIM" then it has the hybrid slot. If DUAL SIM is not mentioned in the option, please assume that it is the single SIM version of the handset.
