After a quick official announcement that the BlackBerry KEYone would finally be hitting a U.S. carrier, Sprint has made the KEYone available for ordering online. Sprint is surprisingly first out of the gate as far as carrier releases go in the States, but we're hopeful (like REALLY hopeful) that they won't be the last. Judging from the wording in their press release — and as we discussed on our latest CrackBerry podcast — we're 99% sure that other carriers will follow soon as well.

If you're looking to pick up a KEYone from Sprint, you can do so online from the BlackBerry KEYone page. A new KEYone will run you $528 flat out if you want to go that route, or you can take the easy $22/month payment plan over 18 months. And as the great Henry Ford said, "You can have any color as long as it's black."

So far the KEYone is only available online, but Sprint says it will be hitting stores later this month — so stay tuned!
