Blackberry unveiled its KEY2 LE at IFA in August and now it's available for pre-order in the US. Pricing starts at $450, but if you were looking to snag the champagne or red versions of the phone, we've got bad news. The champagne color will cost you $50 more and the red version won't be available in the US, at least for now.

Though the KEY2 LE is $200 cheaper than the KEY2, that discount comes with a few concessions. The keyboard isn't touch-sensitive and the dual camera system uses lower-tier components. The phone also comes with a less powerful processor than the KEY 2.

The slate variant of the KEY2 LE is available for pre-order now through Amazon and BestBuy.com, and it's official sale date is October 12th. The champagne color will be available November 2nd. Both are supported on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon and will be available unlocked as well.
