- BlackBerry announced the Motion’s availability across countries in the European Union.
- A handful of accessories are also available alongside the phone.
- BlackBerry originally announced the Motion in October 2017, with the phone previously available in Canada, the U.S., and the Middle East.
Already available in Canada, the U.S., the Middle East, and some European markets, the BlackBerry Motion is available in more countries in the European Union.
The Motion is available for €469 in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the U.K.
Alongside the Motion are some accessories, such as a hard shell case, flip case, and tempered glass screen protector. The hard shell case goes for €35, while the tempered glass screen protector and flip case sell for €10 and €50, respectively.
The Motion features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4 GB of RAM, dual SIM card slots, a big 4,000 mAh battery, and compatibility with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. It also has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance.
We enjoyed our time with the Motion and cited its long-lasting battery, industrial design, and stock-like Android experience with useful BlackBerry add-ons. We dinged the phone for its limited availability, though that is somewhat rectified with the Motion’s availability across the EU.
Even so, the Motion is a smartphone that, while a tad over-expensive for what it is, remains a good choice in the mid-range market.
