This morning I woke up, rolled out of bed and started my morning routine. As part of my routine I normally check my email when I’m brushing my teeth. This morning I had one new email. It was the official announcement from Blackberry that the Priv was finally available for pre-order!
I’ve been holding my breath for this moment and have been super excited for the announcement. I held my breath for a few moments more while I started reading but had to let it out at the end with a little bit of disappointment.
The device itself looks awesome and I would really like to have one. The two big downsides that came out were the price and the fact that it won’t be compatible with Sprint.
The Priv will come with a 5.4″ Quad HD dual-curved screen (like the Samsung Edge line with the curved screen on both sides), a 3410 mAh battery, an 18MP camera, a 1.8 GHz processor, 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of memory, MicroSD support of up to 2TB, and a whole lot more!
The device will start shipping on November 6th for a whooping $699.00.
