See the KEYone in the 6ix

Or, in English, meet the newest BlackBerry in Toronto this weekend.

Kevin Michaluk, aka CrackBerry Kevin, is stopping by on his way home from Barcelona with some final production KEYone phones, and is hosting a casual meetup Saturday night at O’Grady’s, on the corner of Church and Maitland Streets. Anyone interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at Meetup.com
