This year started with a BlackBerry Venice launch being spotted on a calendar. A few days later, T-Mobile confirmed that it’s bringing the first-ever Android-powered BlackBerry phone. And then just last week, T-Mobile announced that the PRIV will be available for $0 down. That day has finally come and you can now order the BlackBerry PRIV.
The BlackBerry PRIV is perhaps one of the most secure smartphones today because it goes through several privacy and mobile security measures. The Android platform is the one not so secure but with BlackBerry’s technology and mobile security framework, the PRIV is safe from harm. BlackBerry has partnered with Google officially to bring an Android phone that is secure and private and very tough against possible vulnerabilities and attacks common to Android.
Here’s a quick review of the BlackBerry PRIV specs: 5.4-inch dual curve display, Gorilla Glass 4, 64 bit Qualcomm 8992 Snapdragon 808 Hexa-Core processor, 32GB onboard storage, 3GB RAM, microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.1, 18MP main camera, and a 3410mAh battery. Special features include the SmartSlide technology, BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, DTEK by BlackBerry, 4K video recording capability, and pop-up widgets.
If you order online now from T-Mobile, you can get it for $719.99 without any contract. Or you can pay no downpayment but be locked in for two years with a $30 monthly fee. Order a BlackBerry Priv directly on T-Mobile’s website.
